The Adventures of Lolo and Mar
I started taking portraits when I was 13 years old. Lauren, my best friend, was my first subject. For 9 years, Lauren has been photographed through the streets of Copenhagen, beaches of Florida, concerts of Iowa City, and the mardi gras in Saint Louis. I’ve photographed her in the happiest moments of my life, one being the photo of Lauren running into the Icelandic rainbow during a rainstorm.
When Lauren and I we’re young, we were riding in the back seat of my fathers car and he said there should be a book called “The Adventures of Lolo & Mar”. Now, whenever Lauren and I go on a trip, we imagine our childhood selves looking at our present selves, and bask in the fact that we evolved together.
I encourage the viewer to take the time to examine the potential of their relationships with others, and hopefully come to the realization that you have loved with all you have to give.
