"I met my friend Rascal at a wedding we were both attending some years ago, I thought he’d be cool to take photos of so i asked him, and this shot was from the first set of portraits we took, ever since then we’ve become good friends, at the moment he’s incarcerated finishing a 3 year term in state prison.
I shot this one with my old faithful Canon AE1 with a 35mm lens. I used arista 400 asa film, which was developed and printed by Russel over here at Schullman Photo Lab. Russel printed in the darkroom on semi gloss archival silver paper." - Estevan Oriol
