I first photographed Nate in 2007 when he was 15. Nate’s brother Will is one of my best friends. Will had told me about an abandoned house in his neighborhood that we needed to explore and photograph. When I went to pick Will up he said Nate wanted to come along. Nate had dyed his hair for the shoot (jet black) and had cut up his shirt for it too. He said he had some ideas for photos. He was wearing ballerina slippers.
Since that time, Nate and I have met up every year to photograph together. Nate picks where we go and he decides what to wear. Here are some photos from those times together: LINK.
