Karla Del Orbe ‘Blue (NSFW)’

Hailing from New York, photographer Karla Del Orbe presents us with her debut series on 35mm film, shot on a road trip from Connecticut to the beaches surrounding NYC. This joy-filled set is naturally organic, nostalgic & spontaneous.

”I connected with Tashira through social media, with the desire to collaborate. We finally met in person less than a year ago. That weekend Tashira was in the city so we went to have dinner, dance & the next day before she returned to her town, I took a few portraits of her. We clicked immediately & knew we wanted to meet again, not just to shoot but to hang out as well, since It felt like a new friendship was being built. It was this summer after she moved closer to New York that we had the chance to meet a second time & create this set. These photos were taken organically, while we enjoyed the sun, the sand & the waves. I took some candid photos of moments I found unique & special. It is a beautiful & joyful thing to make friends through art & collaboration.”

-Karla Del Orbe

”Being photographed is a vulnerable process. I believe the best photos are the ones we take with friends. Karla & I turned a spontaneous beach trip into an adventurous photoshoot. The end product wasn’t just pretty pictures, but genuine moments of fun, laughter & exploration. A good way to make a friend is to create with them.”

-Tashira Santiago
