It was 4 in the morning and we all had been drinking an unbelievable amount of Titos Vodka at the Nakid House Party. Looking for a late night adventure, the Nakid gang took to the streets of Austin, TX during SXSW. There in the parking lot of the Fader Fort, we ran into our friends BIY DIY who were putting on a show inside of a U-Haul. After a few more drinks and a well needed jam session, we saw two of our favorite Texas natives getting to know each other. Two talented and creative people who have mastered their individual crafts extremely well. Karlo X, Dallas’ it photographer. His style is nostalgic and sharp. He is capable of capturing every emotion and vibe through his lens so uniquely. And also Nancy Gonzalez aka Die__Yung, a personal stylist and creative turned photographer. We have worked with Nancy for a couple of shoots ourselves as well as featured some of her personal work at the beginning of the year. She has the creative direction that could turn a basic photoshoot into a Vogue worthy shoot.
After a few more drinks, puffs of future project ideas and inspiration started coming about. Carlo, with his camera already in his hand, looked over at a parked, giant semi-truck and before you know it, we were doing a photoshoot. Because why the fuck not?
