I’ve never been very good with crafting words. I’m more the visuals guy, but where I lack, I love to pull from other people and tap into incredible talents. So with that idea always in mind I asked a friend, George (@gee_o) who happens to be an amazingly talented writer and storyteller, if he would use 4 photos, that I shot, and write about what comes to mind when he looks at them. He came back to me with 4 poems that gave me chills. So direct and vivid and painterly.
Just as my photos can stand alone, George’s brilliant poems can too. But hopefully there is a certain power and harmony in them being together, side by side. We’re super excited to be unleashing a collaborative, @bettercheckyourtone x @gee_o series. Enjoy!
