This was the first set Jerry and I shot together, back in May 2009. We were still in our old apartment where “putting up a backdrop” consisted of me thumbtacking fabric to the ceiling. We had a less-than-great camera, and only various household lamps for lighting. Some of these images are deeply technically flawed, even after I did my best with them in re-editing in 2022. But this remains, and will always be, one of my favorite sets, because it was the beginning of our journey.
