    My portrait of Chicago based installation artist Theaster Gates. Shooting for @ArtPrize for the last four years has provided me an opportunity to not only meet some extremely prominent artists, but also to experiment with different lighting styles. 

    Theaster is one of the coolest artists I’ve ever met…and I wanted his portrait to reflect the weight of his work…which is heavy and blunt.
