Earlier this month I photographed Greg Rachal and his son Greg Jr. at Venice Beach. Greg is the co-president of the Black Surfers Collective, a group I’ve been shooting portraits of for the last few months (here are a couple portraits I shot for the series last June).
I shot these portraits of artist Esteban Schimpf at his Highland Park, Los Angeles apartment last night. I met him a few months ago here in L.A., but it turns out we lived a few blocks from each other in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood in the early 2000s. Check out Schimpf’s work here.
