Dear Paul,
You’ll be just fine.
You’ll go to college, then drop out your senior year to help grandpa. Somehow you buy a camera out of the blue and you become a photographer.
Weird fun fact since I know you like them...One day you do yoga with a Baldwin brother!
I know I know, you do yoga now.
There are more surprises along the way but I’ll let you discover those on your own.
Love Always,
Paul xoxo
Congrats to all the Marathon runners who ran in Chicago today and to my friends like @monalavinia & @bowtie_guy! As well as in Portland to Penny @clmolitor! I watch you guys and don’t think I could ever! #chicagomarathon #marathon

Saw a rainbow on my wall and got curious.

It's been a year since my mom moved to Chicago and today is her birthday! Happy birthday @ladycribb and thanks for being the loveliest mom I could ask for and watering my plants when I go out of town 🌴 💕
When I was in college, you couldn't pass a room on my floor without seeing this poster. You know the one I'm talking about...the one with two women making out in their underwear titled "The Kiss."
It's a beautiful image and will forever remind me of the band TATU (ahhh memories). However, as a closeted gay man at the time, it always made me a little sad. Not the image itself but the fact that every time I looked at it, all I could think was that an image of two guys in the same pose would be considered gross, or likely not even allowed in the dorm.
As my four years progressed through college, this poster haunted me with those thoughts. That sadness.

Years have passed since I last thought about that poster.
Then something happened, it was as if my dreams for closeted freshman Paul were about to come true!
Cards Against Humanity asked me if I’d recreate this image by Tanya Chalkin for a new generation as they’d turn my image into a poster and include in a Cards Against Humanity College Pack!
They had no idea about the back story I had with the image and I couldn’t believe I’d get to finally make it my way!
Sooo we made it and boy did we make it! ;)

📽 Man with a Movie Camera is an experimental 1929 silent documentary film, with no story and no actors, by Soviet director Dziga Vertov, edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova. The film, which takes place over 24 hours, was shot over a period of about 3 years in three Soviet cities — Kharkiv, Kiev and Odessa.
My dad dreams in color 🌈😴
One of my favorite spots in Chicago, Buckingham Fountain! I've never seen it from above, so this was amazing to document from such great heights.❤️

The only image I took during the eclipse was this. As beautiful as it was watching this natural phenomena, it was beautiful watching people of all types come together on the hill and look towards the sun.
Thinking about my Grandpa Jud today.💧
I've been thinking about finally getting a dog...am I crazy? Are there color changing dogs? Will the dog love me? Will I be ok with being "Guys I have to go take out my dog guy????" But really I wanna hang with the dog...and know everyone knows 🐶🌈 Thoughts on getting your first dog?
Honored to have partnered with Johnson & Johnson to document LGBTQ happenings around the country. From the amazing Youth Pride festival in New York City where kids of all colors and ages celebrated life along with supportive families, to marching proudly in my first NYC Pride Parade, then meeting a few of the many activists out there – like leaders from PFLAG - fighting the good fight for our future.
🌈
Johnson & Johnson in helping make equality and inclusivity a reality for all through work with amazing organizations like @pflagnational @familyequality & @trevorproject. These organizations have become some of the most important leaders in uniting the LGBTQ community.

My work with Johnson & Johnson is now wrapped, but we can still make a difference. For every photo uploaded through the @DonateAPhoto app, (honestly the app is beautiful and works brilliantly) Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to a cause of your choosing. 🏳️‍🌈A small act can do big things. #JNJ #CareWithPride #partner
Sunday grocery with the parents. 🍓🍖🥚🍴
I've come to appreciate the "Dad Jokes" given by Paul Sr aka my Dad.
While we were shopping, I sighed at one of his "Dad Jokes" as he walked away. At that exact same moment the lady behind the Seafood Counter said to me "Take in all the "Dad Jokes" now and appreciate them, you'll miss them one day." I now will appreciate every dad joke that's bad or bad bad. 😌🤞
