Meet The Muse: Abby & Chase

A few seconds with the talented creative duo behind this divine set of images, meet:

 

 

WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO ON A WORKING DAY? DO YOU HAVE ANY RITUALS?

Abby—“I’m a coffee addict so you can bet on me going directly from my bed to the kitchen to make a french press full. Other than that I like to put on records and take my waking slowly with as much natural light as possible.”

Chase—“First, I somehow get up at 6am even though I don't have to be at my store until 10am. So for 3 and 1/2 hours I pretty much read articles and watch documentaries. Well unless its the weekend because there is always Euro football on and my team Dortmund usually plays at 6:30AM haha”

 

 A SONG THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU DANCE?

Abby: Broccoli - Dram

Chase: In-between Days - The Cure

 

  

 

 GO TO KARAOKE SONGS?

Abby—“I really don’t go to too many karaoke joints, but I will say that Chase and I can give Vanessa Carlton a run for her money making our way downtown on any Ordinary Day.”

 

WHAT DO YOU COLLECT? 

Abby—“I don’t have one thing I’m obsessed with collecting... unless shoes and vintage clothes count. In that case, I’m a huge collector.”

Chase—“I personally don't collect much but I do love vinyl records and have a pretty decent collection of those.”

 

 

WHAT YOU LISTENING TO ON SPOTIFY, ANY GOOD PLAYLISTS WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT?

Abby—“When it comes down to it I listen to a little bit of everything from the Grateful Dead to Future to Frank Black haha, but Chase made me a 90s R&B playlist on Spotify earlier this year with the best of TLC and ODB that has ruled all others for jamming.”

Chase—“Im really into 70's new wave, 80's goth and 90's sad song written stuff haha my playlist is named friday if you don't believe me.”

 

CHASE: IF YOU COULD PHOTGRAPH ANYONE WHO WOULD IT BE?  

Chase—“Abby is more inspiring than any model I can think of, if I had access to a time machine though id chose Jane Birkin.”

 

 

  

FAVOURITE PIZZA TOPPING?

Abby—“Any topping is fine with me once I pour some ranch on it. Except mushrooms. Gross.”

Chase:”The Cheese part haha.”

 

SPIRIT ANIMAL?

Abby: Lara Stone

Chase: Robert Smith  

 

 

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THE CITY WHERE YOU LIVE (Portland, Oregon)

Chase—“Cold, Dark, Sad?”

Abby—“^^^ Same”

 

INSPIRING PERSON TO FOLLOW

Abby—“In the fashion/art world Igor Pavlov (@igorpavlovv) and Jimmy Marble (@jimmymarble) both have distinct tastes that appreciate and use lots of color similar to Chase that I admire in our current art world filled with photographers who are very scared to commit to vivid tones. In terms of models, Jessica Tonder (@jessica_tonder) understands shapes and movement better than most fashion models I’ve seen and I really annoy her work for that reason.”

Chase—“Well, besides arosevan. I really love Zoey Grossmans photography (@zoeygrossman) and also Tamara Lichtenstein (@tamaralich) is a 35mm photographer that is really inspiring to me.”
