There is something special about capturing the spirit of a person in a portrait. This is, of course, made a lot easier when you know the subject’s spirit well. Dana Burkett is a friend of mine based in Los Angeles. A stylist in her own right, she’s also a lover of the 1960s and 1970s and all that it stands for – passion, equality, justice, freedom, expression, strength, and self determination. So when she asked me to shoot “a few pieces” for her new vintage clothing store I was more than happy to – so happy, in fact, that we ended up doing far more than a few pieces and had an amazing private shoot on one of Downtown L.A.’s scenic rooftops. Spirit: captured!
