Layer, Snow

Last Friday, I traveled upstate with some of my boys Jeremy and Joekenneth to visit the Watchtower Educational Center in Patterson N.Y. After the experience, we purposely got lost and found ourselves on an empty road while the sun was approaching the golden hour. We stopped the engine, grabbed the camera and snapped away. Sometimes the spontaneity of shooting gives images the best result because you never know what you'll end up with.

We are back! I've been thinking about revamping the site for quite some time now but glad the change finally came. My graphic designer Paige Simpson did an amazing job helping me restructure things to give the site a more clean and organized look. I've also switch from Blogger to Square Space so if you have any issues with following along let us know. The site has almost been around for 5 years and interesting enough my interest has expanded into culture, lifestyle, art, travel and more. Thank you for following the journey and welcome to the New Dapper Lou.

L'Homme Sans Visage...Bastille, Paris

Shot by Julien Boudet

During my last week in Europe, I met up with a photo friend Julien Boudet for a photo session. He mentioned how amazing the staircase in the building was on Boulevard Richard LeNoir.  But said the best time to shoot was at noon because the light was perfect. So I followed his strict instructions and got dressed in an African Print Dent de Man jacket, black HM shorts, brown Paul Smith loafers, and my usual fedora Borsalino hat. I made to the building at noon on the dot and we took the tiny elevator to the top floor. Everything in Paris seems to be tiny. Julien started shooting me from sixth floor and I walked down to the  fifth then forth but it felt awkward to look up, so I'm faceless in most of the shots. Hence the French title of the shoot, "L'Homme Sans Visage" which means The Man Without a Face.
