I consider myself very lucky in the friend department, but there is definitely a top-tier of people who I truly can not imagine my life without. Eddie is unquestionably one of them. We met in middle school in chorus; we both loved music and were frequent soloists, so even though we were a year apart in school, we got to know each other at rehearsals and hanging out after school singing around the piano. We stayed friends in high school through singing and theatre and kept in touch when we went away to college. It was during college that we became very close. We just started hanging out when we were both home on breaks and it turned into one of the best friendships I could ever hope for. We have so much fun together and we appreciate each other's quirks and share the same sense of humor (we always joke that most people would run like hell if they knew what was really going on inside our heads). We really understand each other and we are always there for each other, no matter what. We are completely honest and are always there to lend an ear or tell an inappropriate joke if the situation needs one. In short, he is like my platonic other half and I am very lucky to have him in my life.
Eddie has alway been so supportive of everything I want to do in my life, and particularly with my interest in photography. We have been taking pictures together for years, long before I had any interest in actually doing anything with photography. We usually take about 30 of the same picture because we can never agree on one where we both look good. Because we are so close and so comfortable with each other, he is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. He is interesting and handsome and we genuinely have fun during shoots so I always look forward to them. We lived in different states for the last 13 years, but now we finally live in the same state, so we are having a blast hanging out and taking pictures all over the place! The pictures in his gallery are collected from a few different locations and times. The gallery starts in Humarock Beach in Marshfield, MA over the summer, then to Hanover, NH in the fall, and ends in Duxbury, MA this December. I imagine this the first of many galleries of Eddie, so get used to him!
