At any given time, Jesse shares his 1-bedroom Williamsburg apartment with 4-5 bikes in various stages of assembly. And for a week or two each spring, his stretch of Havermeyer St looks like this.
His girlfriend Emmy contacted me almost a year ago about doing a portrait of Jesse with “one of his other girlfriends” for his birthday. We couldn’t make our schedules work then. But 2012 is a new year, and Wednesday evening we finally made it happen. Jesse agonized a bit before choosing this lovely Ciöcc for the portrait.
Spring has sprung!
