he was the first photographer who really introduced me into the world of the muse/photographer. we met while working retail at STUSSY in 2001. man, those were the days. he started with a few flicks at work and then made his way into the studio with me soon after.

*he used to say “you’re my female muse and OSCAR is my male muse”.
*the side shot i so frequently flash is due to this man…blame him! it might have been actually invented right at this shot.
aside from being a super talented visionary, he’s also creative director at SUPREME, a fun uncle and a great friend.
*ME and ANGELO in 2002, before my 2 finger name ring was stolen from me at gun point. then, later replaced by the now familiar 3 finger name ring
*ME (wearing ANGELO’s hat), ANGELO and SEAN KELLING…after working at STUSSY we would sneak our way into super exclusive parties. it was a good time…
fast forward to a couple days ago, ANGELO invited me and some friends for portraits…we haven’t lose our chemistry!
behind the scenes…
*good to see you back at it friend…we still got it!
