Of all the pieces I've had published here and there so far, this is easily the one I'm most proud of. It all started last fall with an email from a girl named Elizabeth Doan in Australia who thought I might like this brand spankin' new swimwear line called We Are Handsome, which lead to a blog post or two, which lead to a pitch and now--fast forward a few months, dozens of emails, a Skype conversation to the other side of the world, some early morning trips to Bed Stuy, a photoshoot (on medium format film!) in Brighton Beach on a frigid spring afternoon--my article is leading the Style section in FADER Magazine #68!
Thanks so much to Jeremy for taking the time to talk on the internet with me, and for the motivational life tips imparted to me in a wine bar atop the Time Warner Building. I'm still working on taking them all to heart. Baby steps.
