These portraits of Caitlin were taken in Central Park and Fort Tryon Park in 2016, soon after our first meeting on Roosevelt Island. Since then we’ve grown to become close friends and collaborators, and were roommates in Harlem for a while. Caitlin is a talented performance artist and a respected healer focusing on body and mind through meditative practices and movement.
One of my fellow UCB alums contacted me one day asking if we could collaborate on some photos, he had some ideas. We knew each other from social media, but had never met in person before. He showed up and revealed that in his pocket was a small effigy of an animal and a crystal. I revealed that in my pocket was a small effigy of an animal and a crystal. We’ve been friends and occasional collaborators ever since!
These were shot around Astoria and Central Park.
