I met Maury Diakite on Instagram after he messaged me requesting to use one of my photos to paint from. I decided to take a little break from my studio/very planned style, so I asked him if I could photograph him while he painted. I find watching people do their thing quite fascinating. It's authentic. I also have to admire anyone who says in their adult life, "I want to be a painter!" and then does precisely that. Check out his work at @jacknapier83 on Instagram!
