When Chris Daniels asks if he can take your portrait- say yes. Chris has become a dear friend over these past few years- and is the type of loving individual that I think many people say that about. I have observed him to have a deep purpose in understanding others fully with no judgement and presenting the individual truths of us all as humans. I have been a huge fan of his photographic skill since the first photo I ever laid eyes on. I was lucky enough to participate in his yearlong exploration into humanity- Project 104. I took him to my secret lake spot- which I found one day with a friend on a long walk where we ventured to find the water in out new neighborhood by walking off the side of the road and through the forrest. I have been back to this place many times since and shot some of my most epic photos there. This shoot was no different. Chris and I experienced the treat of tracking through dark woods and watching the sun rise on the water. Then we ate waffle house and had deep talks about the meaning of life.
I was lucky enough to be part of his recent addition of video footage for the project and I’m really intrigued by what we created.
