MajesticApe

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph #MajesticApe from the band Heavy Breathing.  "I Want You Back" by Jackson 5 was playing in the studio which sent me into a good Motown spiral for two weeks.  #MajesticApe is also an accomplished photographer. She's wonderful in every way. Thanks #MajesticApe for a good time in the studio.

  What do you love about Washington, D.C.?    I have been a resident and active member of the DC music and art community since moving to the city in 1994. But I loved DC long before then. When I was a kid growing up in Montgomery County, MD, my dad would take my brother and I to Georgetown and the I was intoxicated by the idea of being in a place that I regarded as physically beautiful, in walking distance to a river and the woods, and where I could walk around and see people I knew. That first impression still holds true.

  What makes you happy?    There are many activities and people that bring my happiness. I love making images and music. I love spending time with students of the Corcoran School of Art and GW. I love spending time with my family and friends and housemates. Spending time in the woods or in gardens or on the water- all of that makes me happy. Seeing my blooming orchids every day makes me intensely happy.     What are you reading right now?

   What does #MajesticApe expect backstage in the green room?      Though I know its toxic- I do love a  diet coke . I like plenty of water, a towel, a clean room, pumpkin seeds or peanuts. I don't need much. Mostly a place where I can change clothes without standing in someone else's urine. The days of touring made me really quite bummed out by 'pee socks'.
