I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Pharrell during his career retrospective talk with Jason King at Town Hall. Pharrell is the new Artist-in-Residence for NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the interview covered everything from his childhood in Virginia, early musical influences, success with the Neptunes, N.E.R.D., and working with some of the biggest names in music today. As a fan myself, it was amazing to hear him talk about the evolution of his career and how so much of his success has come from experimenting and having a "Mr. Magoo" philosophy of stumbling onto ideas and following your instincts. Check out NPR to watch the interview, and thanks to Marat Berenstein and Nikki Mirasola for a great night!
