'yooooo' is how zunen starts all his convos + all his posts on his blog lifefromdust.com (check it out now!). having attended his 22nd bday a few years back whilst not really knowing him, we followed each other on instagram, before zunen hollered at me a few years later wanting to do a collab. say whaaaat!! check out his post from this session here: https://lifefromdust.com/blog/2018/8/13/heather-x-zun
as creatives, zunen reached out to tell my story on his blog on how i keep my passion for creating alive, whilst i had the joy of photographing him around covent garden. we grabbed pub grub for lunch + then moved around for a chill, urban shoot. honestly, i was put out of my comfort zone having to shoot in the heart of london (surely i'm not the only one who feels weird when people stare at me shoot, or otherwise feel like i might get robbed whilst distracted shooting?!) but hey ho, at least i didn't have to pose in the middle of london!
the madness of this shoot is owed to zunen who was dressed perfectly for our location - his green jacket + green sneakers literally matched the colour of the market. i'm so glad we decided to shoot at covent garden as i walk past there at least once a week but never liked how busy it was. having done this shoot, i now realise that it is so full of character + gems.
after our shoot, we moved to le pain quotidien for a cappuccino + chai tea. it is sweetly located in covent garden + has a second floor so you can overlook the market. it was here that stories + testimonies came to life, + here that we exchanged words of encouragement to keep creating + refining our crafts. if there is one thing that zunen has reminded me, it is that we are created to create. amen brother.
