At the top of 2020, my brother and frequent collaborator Andy Baptiste tapped me to creative direct a series of portraits for his upcoming photography book. The start of Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdowns halted many of the plans that we had for future shoots.

In March of 2020, Andy came across a call for creatives to submit work for the April cover of Nude magazine. This gave us a chance to have some of the work that we made together actually see the light of day with the photo book project being put on pause. After submitting what we felt were the strongest photos from what we had we were informed that our work would be the April 2020 cover story.
