Ray Barbee is one of the most gentle men you will ever meet. Under his quiet facade, you will uncover a passion for everything creative. This man can play music directly from his soul, skate like no other, and photograph images that capture the true persona of the person underneath… Watching Ray direct his creativity on a skateboard, through his guitar, and behind the lens will most definitely blow your mind.
Kirk and I had the chance to spend a day with Ray playing music, skating the neighborhood, and developing in the dark room as he processed endless rolls of film from past travels and explorations.
Check out the video created by the handsome Kirk Dianda, and my images and footage from the shoot below.
