I met Julia and Jeff when the Hampshire College Alumni Association sent out an e-mail about a Art Basel party at their house. I didn't have a place to stay in Miami, so I was trying to figure out if I was going when I got the e-mail. I Facebook'd Julia and also asked a mutual former FB friend/professor Sura Levine if she thought Julia might be receptive to putting me up for the week (a lot to ask a total stranger). They warmly welcomed me into their beautiful home and fed me delicious meal after
delicious meal. Julia works at the elementary school that her kids attend and Jeff owns an ad agency
I met Matt A in Portland at some point in Portland during the late 80's. I have seen him throughout the years when he comes to Maine or I go to Miami for the art fairs. Matt is also a photographer, and a jack of all trades. He captained boats for many years and is currently helping to restore parts of the Filmore.
I took the bus to South Beach on Saturday night, and then I photographed him on Sunday.
