Quick to make me laugh and a smile that is contagious, Bertie Taylor is an authentic and grounded gentleman in truest sense of the word. Walking along the Brighton beach front and through the streets, Bertie taught me how to navigate my way around my new city and how to get the right train back home. In turn, I taught him a thing or two about Midwest American accents.

In between the laughs, friendly banter, and impersonations of his grandfather, I took a few photos of this man around the city I now call home.
