Chris Charles, otherwise known as Creative Silence has become what I call my "Creative Soulmate." The raw energy and easy vibez he brings to our sessions make it easy to be myself and our shared Jamaican roots make connecting that much more inspiring to us both. Additionally, his life experiences, genuine nature, and intelligence make him someone who is easy to shut up and listen to. I feel caught up in the art of it all every time we work together, and I think that speaks to his genius.
This series is special to me not only because of all of the amazing images we got out of it and the jobs that would follow, but because it is the first time I felt like I was materializing as a force as it was being created. The video Chris was able to pull from the imagery was equally as artisic and filling for us both and it was clear that this session was the begining of a great partnership between two very driven individuals who happen create dope art together.
