My portrait of Big Chief Shaka Zulu was an Editor's Pick for @theindependentphoto's portrait awards last month. What a whirlwind of recognition the last few days! Not only is this one of my favorite photos I've captured, it was also featured in 1806 Magazine, Vol. 2: New Orleans and currently hangs in Shaka's Golden Feather gallery in NOLA. For those unfamiliar with the Mardi Gras Indians, I highly recommend reading up on their history and visiting New Orleans during Mardi Gras or Super Sunday to catch a glimpse of their ornate hand-crafted suits.
#flashbackfriday to when this angel came to visit @jdunduk 😇 😈 I miss you most on Friday’s. You are possibly the most generous human I know. So proud of the incredible things you have achieved since this trip. #ily#mygirl And yes, those are Espresso Martini’s to go ☕️ 🍸 (c/o @nathanjaeger88) 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
