filmmaker & actress tigist selam

This is my beautiful friend, filmmaker and actress Tigist Selam, who I met years ago in NYC, while dancing to whatever Q-Tip was spinning that night. It turned out we were both German, had lived abroad for quite a while and were essentially neighbors in Harlem. Needless to say we hung out and collaborated many times thereafter. Here’s a small look into one of several shoots.

I got a had made by master hatter Gunner Foxx,  and through that I got to visit his incredibly beautiful workspace on Sunset Blvd in the heart of Hollywood. This space somehow feels like traveling back in time, so when it came to picking up the finished piece, I took the opportunity to capture the raw beauty of the space.  131113_Gunner_Foxx_0812_RT
