Typical pose & here I am smiling in juxtaposition. What’s even better than this is the story behind it. This was on the door at the exhibit by @ & during his photo he told us he only had about 15 seconds to snap this photo of . Jason talked about how he was grateful to work with such a & that he put his own ideas to the side to embrace what his friend Kanye is about in terms of artisty. “I hate black and white,” Kanye told Peterson, who only shoots in black and white, but then the next day he let him know he was just joking. If I could have been a fly on the wall during that meeting, it would have been amazing. The key take away, however, is that, as , we must keep an open mind & listen to other artists & sometimes that requires humbling ourselves & letting others shine. I truly admire Peterson for his ability to do that and for being flexible to an extent. At the end of the day, he still got a great shot & he was able to create his art the way he creates his art. However, to get that shot, he understood & appreciated Kanye as he is. We are all and we all deserve to be seen as we really are, as artists, as human beings. It is refreshing when people have enough wisdom to understand all that. I’ve seen Jason work with people a little bit & he has a way to make them feel comfortable so they can navigate his world as a & so he can navigate theirs as subjects.
