Botanical Portraits / Cereal Magazine.

Thursday, March 12, 2015

So very happy to share a collaborative mini-piece that I had the pleasure of writing for Cereal Magazine alongside my brother, Max, who took the photos. The story features four "botanical portraits" taken at the Huntington Gardens, an LA gem flush with color and texture and a million living things.


"The Huntington manages to foster a sense of both community and isolation. As much as it’s alive with movement and conversation, it’s also abundantly accommodating of a need for stillness... Here, it feels possible to get lost, and, from time to time — standing in a sea of blossoms or wandering shaded walkways lined in slender bamboo — to feel alone."
