We had a great time working with Solange Knowles and Brooklyn Magazine for their summer cover story in May. Photographer iO Tillet Wright worked with some challenging lighting conditions to get some great portraits of Solange and her talented/beautiful friends. We started the day at Colony Studios, a great new studio space at the Green Building- which is kind of like a Brooklyn version of the Starrett Lehigh Building in Manhattan. From there, we moved to Ft Greene, where we based the talent and crew atMadiba, a phenomenal South African restaurant. It was a perfect place to shoot and eat, and a a Ft Greene sunset provided the perfect way to end the day. Solange and her friends were a pleasure to work and hang with. Everyone worked really hard on this one- and had lots of fun too. You can check out the interview and article here. Scroll down for BTS shots from the day and the shoot credits as well. Thanks everyone!
