Portraits | Dan Shapiro | Shanghai 2012

In the middle of 2012 - My friend & musician Dan Shapiro ask me to take a few portraits of him at various stages of its moustache treaming. We met regularly for a month shooting in my apartment with a simple set up and my hasselblad on a few rolls of films. A year passed since then and I finally took the time to look at those films and sharing the photos here .

Venice Beach

This summer, I spent some time on the US west coast, especially shooting portraits on Venice Beach. The diversity of the people strolling around the walkway amazed me and I wanted to capture that with my old rolleiflex. Unfortunately, the shutter broke and only the first photo of each roll came out. Here are 3 of the 4 photos that came out from those 4 rolls shot on the beach.
