A Day in Brooklyn with 2:54 and Honeyblood

First Stop. Rough Trade NYC.

Story by Chad Kamenshine March 2nd, 2015

Emoji In real life

My friend Jamie asked me, “Why did you choose this path for your life?”
-
“Because of the connections that go beyond the shoot.”

One of the most rewarding parts of the usual craziness of capturing an artist‘s photo is meeting someone new. And in turn, getting to appreciate a shared experience with them. At Rough Trade in Brooklyn, I met up with Stina and Cat of Honeyblood and the Thurlow sisters of 2:54 - two pairs of overseas buzzmakers that you should definitely lend an ear to…

We talked #dressgate (I saw both), shared favorite albums, and attempted to make portraits.
After many laughs, what stood out most to me is how both bands possess personalities more fun and expressive than the emojis found on our phones. 🌀
