I feel like everyone should get the chance to meet Lily. We met through a mutual friend and bonded over our mutual likeness of nakedness. We scheduled a day for picture-taking and ended up talking for hours. I was half-listening and half-watching her talk. She comes from years of dancing and yoga, so she gives off this amazing vibe of kindness and coolness. Her hands and body flowed like Pocahontas on the river. (Ha, you know exactly what I'm talking about.) We talked about careers, lack of plans, our upbringings, books, her spontaneous move to Thailand, what it's like to date men, our goals to move west, of not staying in one place, contentment with less money and more experiences, family, Baltimore - we covered a lot of topics and managed to create some amazing portraits at the same time. Work that I'm really proud and excited about.
Lily lives on the top floor of a warehouse in Baltimore city. Enough said. Go ahead and play this song by Vicktor Taiwò while you scroll through.
