Jamila + El Mirage Dry Lake Bed, California, November 3, 2015


Last night an opening for today appeared in the schedule, just as Jamilacontacted me. She has been working in Los Angeles since a few weeks ago, and all of a sudden our longing to collaborate become a reality. Without much fuss we made plans to meet today and head out to my favorite place in the States for photography. 
She brought what she had, which was more than I would have anticipated. The weather was unseasonably cool, yet did little to affect her desire to present her art. We picked three places on the lake bed, and photographed at each for perhaps 30 or so minutes.
This was our second spot, a new perspective for me. While clouds and lightning gathered over Los Angeles, we had nothing but blue skies and a lunar landscape in which to collaborate. The only sound was that of the wind, and the clicking of the shutter. 
Happenstance at its best!
