University & Sergio

First of all, I would like to thank Sergio, a fellow 9gagger, for his kind message. I already replied that this means a lot but I cannot emphasize this enough. THANK YOU! Your message was actually the first I received through this page. Your kind words encouraged me to post this today and not tomorrow, as initially planned.

Today, Arthur and I met up at his university to document more of his daily life. Although I didn’t attend a lecture I think I was able to capture moments that show Arthur as he is; cheerful, happy and a smoker.

I got to meet some of his friends at the university who are all very kind. The camera made Arthur look like a celeb and the word on the street was spread rapidly. Even strangers approached us because they had heard about the project.

Shooting this publicly was weird for my brother at first but after a while he and his friends got used to the clicking sounds. I turned off my flash because I didn’t want to disturb people any more than I already did just with my presence and following every step. Arthur knew it would take some time getting used to the camera but I feel like he made a huge progress today. The photographs seem more natural to me already, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Trying out different edits. I have to admit this makes him look kinda sick.
