If you told me that I’d be writing a post about a photoshoot I did with Sepp Graywolf six months ago, I’d laugh in your face. The man, the legend, the chiseled cheekbone glory himself? That’d be impossible! Turns out… it’s not impossible at all. In fact, all it takes is one trip to Portland, Oregon and to ask nicely.
Mori Man // Sepp Graywolf
Who is Sepp?
Some say that he’s Sirius Black, and to that he’ll say something along of the lines of… “I’m not saying I’m Sirius Black, I’m just saying neither of us have been in the same room together.” Some say he looks a lot like the actor Johnny Depp. To me, I was first blown away by his sense of fashion. When I was first trying to understand what strega fashion was, I discovered him and several others through the Strega Lookbook.
Outside of fashion, Sepp is a landscape photographer. He’s a forest boy at heart. This particular photo walk, he was dressed in such a mori fashion. He literally looked like the surroundings we walked through. I aimlessly snapped around him, recalling our last photo walk where he had told me that to him:
Landscape photography wasn’t just about capturing the vision but the way the vision felt.
The more you keep this man in the forest, the more of the forest he becomes..
But that’s a story for later days.
