I’ve been working a lot with artist Jay Royale over the last year. There is something really powerful collaborating with other artists who do totally different work and yet there is connection in the process of creating our work.
He released a recent mixtape, The Crown Royale Mixtape, you can download and listen to for free here.
With a bottle of Crown and my camera, we shot for a couple hours around Baltimore and then headed back to my studio to shoot some portraits. At the very end of our shoot, Jay walked over and poured himself another glass of Crown, giving us the cover.
