Sophia and Michael: Creating Art Together
Sophia, a cinematographer from Hawaii Kai, O'ahu, and Michael, a painter hailing from Meridian, California come together every season to create art. "It's a great way to reminisce about life during that era - through the creation of art and memories," says Michael. This season, we had the special honor of being part of their journey. With the intention of learning new skills and capturing their individual styles, they embarked on a trip to Lake Tahoe and produced a catalog titled "rat boi summer camp."
Sophia, typically behind the camera, stepped into the role of modeling, while Michael, the master painter, found himself behind the lens for the first time ever. "Transitioning from always being behind the lens to directing someone else to capture the vision I had in my mind was an incredible collaboration. It felt like giving someone a crash course in my decade of experience, sharing everything I know while trying to play both the model and the art director. The result was something I could have never even imagined," explains Sophia.
Join us on a mystical journey through the woods, across the lake, and experience rat boi summer in our very first catalog medium.
