When hip hop artist Raz Simone agreed to do a portrait sitting with me, I was truly excited. I knew of him through my friend and very talented stylist Kristen Mom. She had told me a few things about him, but other than having a small knowledge of who he was and what he looked like, I was really in the dark.
Like any person who is gaining public awareness, there is a plethora of interviews and information on Raz. However, I decided to keep myself blissfully ignorant. I didn't want to have a preconceived notion of who this person was. I really believe there is something profound in meeting someone for the first time.
Let me know what you think.
