GQ, 'The Lost Highway'

One of the most sobering editorial projects that we have had the pleasure of working on where we released 71 black balloons from the back of a truck to honor the lives of the 71 Syrian refugees who died tragically in a truck left abandoned on a roadway in Austria in August, 2015.

The concept was pitched by GQ on a Monday and we shot it fully rogue style in the rain on the Friday in upstate NY.  Special thanks to my balloon crew: Riely, Pat, Tara and stylist Ariana Salvato. Special thanks the Krista Prestek, Justin O'Neil and all at GQ for thinking of me for this exceptional project.
