I’m such a fan of Matt Fry as both an artist and a person, and feel very lucky to have gotten to know him and his work through working together for Dazed & Confused. If you are not already familiar with Matt’s photography, check it out here : frybros.com.
Whenever I am in Los Angeles, I love the opportunity to shoot with Matt; real conversation and connection lead the way, and perfectly timed pictures just somehow follow like cygnets paddling behind their momma swan.
It was one afternoon early November in 2014, I was visiting friends and family in California for a few weeks, that I met up with Matt and we headed to the Daimaru Hotel in Little Tokyo. We spent hours talking about all sorts of things (love, music, our lives) and I remember feeling almost euphoric afterwards. Later that evening I went to see Blade Runner for the first time at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, continuing the euphoria!
Here are a couple of photos I found from the shoot; I just love the the way the shadows and light play with one another…
