This Could Be the First Trumpet (Might As Well Be the Last) - With Sam Trump

Yesterday I got a chance to do a brief shoot with the incomparable musician and singer Sam Trump. I've known Sam for a few years, as we've crossed paths at the Gala and in other Chicago performance-based spaces. This was my first chance to shoot him. As with many of my recent shoots, I've been making work in response to the work of Jeffery Renard Allen, whose descriptions of urban sunlight have stuck with me since the first time I read them. 

Below find a sampling of my shoot with Sam. Feel free to share!
