When I think about you it’s always morning. There are bedsheets tangled around my wrists and burnt coffee in the kitchen. You were always really good at making new worlds on my rib cage, forging entire existences before the day even started. The games you played, I never won. I just wanted to play with you, soak in your laugh and make-believe. I liked it best when you got pretty just for me. I could get around on that all day – the world a dull place in comparison to you in the morning.
Abi Rae Stine shot by Isaac Zoller in NOE Garments. Captured on a slow LA Tuesday. If there is such a thing they’ve found it – a series hovering somewhere between real life and morning rituals. Abi is rendered playful and striking, yet intimate in front of his camera. There is a certain quality of being let into a secret space, saved only for those who keep pillow talk and day dreams.
