I am posting this photo of Jonathan Byrel Moore-Northrop in honor of his birthday. Please note, this is Jonathan from a former life. I met Jonathan when he accompanied Steve, his master at that time, on a photo shoot. The session lasted three hours and was mostly photographs of Steve, but there were also some photos of Steve and Jonathan. This photo was the very last photo of the entire shoot. Jonathan was so open, so vulnerable and so present, with no masks, or anything hidden. I knew at the moment that I took this picture what a powerful image it was. And yes, I objectified the top and turned the top into a fetish object. ;) Something I like to do. Happy Birthday Jonathan and good luck on this new chapter in your life.
