Hennessey & FADER asked me what my Wild Rabbit was and told me to photograph that (oh hey, dream job). What motivates me? The insanely amazing women I’m blessed to have in my life. So I did a series of 14 portraits of some of my favorite women in water because these are the people who center, comfort, inspire me. These are my mermaids. This one in particular is the most important: my incredible sister Rebecca. You wouldn’t guess it here but we laughed through this whole shoot. You can see more over on @Brinsonbanks’s Instagram & Tumblr.
Ben wrote the forward to my limited edition photography book about Sun City, but had never been in person (he conducted interviews via phone). So when a German magazine sent me back last week and told me to find a writer, I knew he was my guy. It was fun introducing him to all the amazing people I’ve met there since my first visit in December 2009.
I think I might have helped him love Sun City as much as I do. #suncitylifeafterlife
