An outtake from the 2012 Maroon Tiger Man of the Year magazine. This is absolutely one of my favorite photos of the year. It’s not just this photo was great… Nick’s face is perfect. The fire on the paper is just right. It’s not overpowering but it’s definitely there. It’s not just that. It’s because while we were shooting this, in a public park in south Atlanta about an hour and a half after the park closed and right after I snapped these few shots we saw police lights and flashlights heading our way. Four young black guys in the park with lighter fluid and a stack of old newspapers? Yeah, not a good look. Luckily, we were all impeccably dressed and well-spoken so we left out of there… only to return the next night, setting fire in park once again.
