Spring has a way with you, drawn out from the walls of your bedroom. You flip the vinyl more often, you go for a walk, you tell me there is something you want to show me. We are creatures of habit and you are my habit. So, we go up long winding roads to where the city isn’t a city anymore and spend the afternoon, how an afternoon is meant to be spent, you say. Everywhere I see you feels like an already framed photograph hanging on a wall in a house I haven’t lived in yet.

With this journey in mind, we dive into his latest editorial featuring Chandler Bailey.
