HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU


Before my big shave on Wednesday, I had the great privilege and honor to sit for photographer Kelly Grider, who took several dozen large-format portraits of me, including several with two different Cold War arial spy lenses: one from the United States and one from the Soviet Union.  The US lens actually leaves a mildly radioactive signature in the room.  The Soviet lens offers a mesmerizing iridescent sheen on its surface (particularly mesmerizing at the end of the photoshoot).  It also takes much better images and was made without the help of nuclear trace elements.  Feel the glow:

  9. Large-format camera portraits are always mesmerizing (why, yes, I know a lot about them, as the Other Half is a connoisseur and has a number of them). Don't be surprised if you wind up getting portraits based on this pics.
