When I first met Michael online and he agreed to this shoot, we exchanged numbers and I put him in my phone as Michael Sweetheart because of how he came across, and that's exactly what he was when we met in person! We met in his "second living room," a cafe on Wallace. We walked over to his place and sat in his basement apartment kitchen chatting about gender politics and living in different cities. He was so chatty throughout the shoot, which is why I was able to get so many shots of him smiling. At the end of it, he told me that I was a wonderful boost to his self image.
