Photographing the artists of Jose Bold and Friends “Dream House”

 

It’s such an honor to have two people such as John Osebold (2011 Genius Award winner) and Montana von Fliss as friends.  Not only are they incredibly talented and successful, but their hearts are made of gold sunshine and their happiness and laughter is so contagious that you’re on cloud nine for weeks on end.   They are easy like a Sunday morning.

It’s also kind of perfect that John and Montana invited me to their home to photograph them in their pajamas before the opening of John’s new show “dream house“.  We sat and talked while sipping tea and eating vanilla wafers.  And in the same vein as “dream house“, it was endless entertaining conversation and an experience I will forever cherish.
