I went out to Opelousas to meet painter Jerome Ford at his studio for a photo shoot. The building itself was fairly spartan, but with exposed brick walls and project materials everywhere, it made for a cool setting for our pictures. We ended up using the upstairs, which was totally empty because of the construction work. Throw in a couple of his colorful paintings of southern Louisiana scenes and boom, we had our shot.
