Josiah Esowe, Photographer, and Gaiden Tanaka-Esowe, Kindergartner
What are you guys up to today?
Josiah: I’m taking Gaiden to a photo shoot for the Mini Boden catalogue. He’s been modeling since he was 4.
Gaiden: I like when they dress me up, but it hurts to smile because my tooth is hurting more and more—my wiggly one that’s about to fall out.
Do you guys often coordinate your plaids?
Josiah: No, we don’t—though we both wear a lot of colors. My jacket and pants were custom-made. My friends call my style “neo-vintage bespoke.”
