At the 2011 Rites of Passage, my friend New York photographer Peter Ruprecht and designer Adam Pollina had arranged a photo shoot for clothing label Juun Saarah. We helped load the truck with dozens of silky pillows, then drove it out to the Deep Playa for the photo shoot. The curtains were billowing around in the wind, one of them connected with one of the lights and burst into flame. It took about a minute for the whole trailer to go up.
Fire! Fire! Fire is cool. Huh huh.
