life: photography by my good friend ANGELO BAQUE

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.

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 🙂

fast forward to a couple days ago, ANGELO invited me and some friends for portraits…we haven’t lose our chemistry!
