You may have noticed I’m a big fan of social experiments.
So when I saw internationally acclaimed photographer Hugh Stewart’s latest project, I felt compelled to drop him a line.
Hugh is a portrait specialist, having photographed some seriously salubrious celebs including Johnny Cash, Nicole Kidman, George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, Leonardo Dicaprio, Geoffrey Rush, Cate Blanchett, the Duchess of Devonshire….and slightly less notable, this guy holding an avocado.
Despite my cool, calm and collected demeanor in the photo (it’s easy to fake it over Facetime….maybe they should call it Faketime), being involved in this black & white portrait series was akin to meeting Mick Jagger backstage in the late 60’s. A real hoot.
Hugh Stewart is one cool & talented dude, and I’m super thankful for Smashed Avo being part of his project too.
