THE PORTRAITS OF SATI LEONNE FAULKSPosted BY JORDAN ON December 12th, 2012
It’s been about four months since I’ve last seen my friend Sati. It was August, and very early in the morning. We were in Paris, coincidently, and he was buzzing to get into my friend Alice’s apartment after having missed his train to Berlin. Or, wait. That was the second to last time I saw him. The last time I saw him, he’d just found a cheap ride share and was throwing everything into a backpack as he flew down the stairs of that same apartment. Anyways, I recently looked him up online to see what he’s been up to, or what country he’s in, and was excited to see he’s been up to the usual: taking beautiful photos. Sati Leonne Faulks is something of a gypsy, with an incredible eye for people and scenes. He’s always got a couple projects on the range, and he always seems to find the best kind of people. Or they find him. Who knows? Maybe I’m feeling nostalgic for the summer, and France, etc., but I’m really into his new work–especially these portraits and juxtapositions. Again, maybe it’s just because I’ve been reading Lawrence Weschler’s Everything That Rises, but I do find an interesting parallel or narrative with these pairings. Anyhow, take a look for yourself–there’s plenty to see.
