On Assignment | Singer-Songwriter Peter Simón | 225

I met up with a local singer-songwriter one evening in August to take some portraits of him in a certain performance space called the Haven Gallery and Listening Room. Haven is a small church located in downtown Baton Rouge that supports local artists by providing them a venue.

Simón is one of these artists, and we spent about an hour taking portraits in the unique space that includes white Christmas lights year-round and a fantastically bright red couch.

As I snapped portrait after portrait, Simón played his guitar and sang along.
