When he was approached for the shoot, he imagined that Divine would be a phenomenal subject.
Colston shares how Divine gave him the freedom to work. He was very clear in his vision but still open to experimenting. Photographer Colston Julian says, “I am a firm believer in things coming together at the right time. I’ve always been fascinated by street style and sports culture and Divine’s project was the perfect platform to explore that further. Divine is a true performer. He is a natural talent who is also very down-to-earth and easy to work with, plus we were both on the same page with how we saw this. The album is a phenomenal hit.”
Colston looks forward to collaborating with Divine again. He added, “It is excellent when people come together to create something substantial. I look forward to traveling with him and shooting him backstage, in the studio – documenting him and his world.”
