|Michael Andrews looking dapper in front of an abandoned church, Harlem, Nov 6, 2010|
I met Michael thru Matt of Fine & Dandy Shop when we collaborated on a style profile of him. It coincided with the Dandy Lion...Behold a Gentleman exhibit opening that day in Harlem. Lotsa activity and meeting new creative, stylish, kind people. So beforehand we all ran around the neighborhood making portraits. Afterwards we all walked and talked and had brunch. I wish we had been able to do this before our photos, because after I got a much better sense of his spirit - a writer with big dreams and an instantly endearing sense of adventure. Michael wants to travel the world and explore and find stories. He is young, but knows the importance of character.
