Handling this little old celluloid baby, while setting up the shot, made me think about the child who first received it as a present.
Was it for Christmas, or a birthday, or just because she/he was the apple of their parents eyes. It made me think about the happiness it brought them, little sparkles of joy on their life’s timeline, and how they are probably no more… and the home of this and other toys I shoot, is a box or a drawer.
I’m happy I can put it in the spotlight again.
I was shooting Rafael Moreira yesterday, he’s an amazing guitar player, he played with Christina Aguilera, Pink, Paul Stanley and many others, he’s also the leader of “Magnetico”. Downtown LA has some very cool walls to lean on, here’s one of my favorites from that session.
