Dear Hesperios Friends,
I’d wanted to send this letter sooner and I promise to start posting these more consistently. These last few weeks, I have been in the throes of discovery and learning: a new language, new software for making films, dreamwork, and other mental techniques. All the while, I’ve been writing every day and building an art studio here in preparation to create a new body of work (like the new Hesperios collection which will expand beyond clothing). I’m not sure what will happen next, but we are thriving here. It’s been fun to have so much time to myself, so I can go deep into the work.
Sending love from Aquinnah,

It’s Stella’s birthday today. We met 13 years ago (or so) at a Halloween party in the Hollywood Cemetery. She was a zombie ballerina, and I was Francois Hardy (and she was the only one who recognized me). We’ve been traveling the world and working together ever since. Here are some of my favourite photographs of Hesperios by the one and only Stella Berkofsky.
