April in August
It’s been a little while since I shot images for my Colour on my Skin project. Last time I photographed my friend Mike in Singapore, that seems like a million lightyears ago in May.
Yesterday, on a warm winter’s day in August, I shot April and her retro leopard skin bike. I had mentioned my project to her and explained that the idea is to photograph people with tattoos in everyday situations whilst trying to maintain each person’s personality in the scene. I had jokingly said that if she were a rollerblade queen, we would somehow incorporate it. She replied with ‘I have this old school bike with leopard print’. Yes, double fist pump.
