Aint–Bad in Conversation with Beatriz “BEACASSO” Valim #celebratephotography
Aint–Bad and Beatriz Valim talk COVID-19, Valim’s DaDa inspired “Bigger than Life” project and more:
SG: Like I said before, this project is very different than other projects I have seen from you. Do you enjoy changing directions like this? Are you still shooting while working on this project?
BV: This pandemic has inspired me to create “Bigger Than Life.” “Bigger Than Life” has been a dream project for as long as I could remember, but I’ve never had enough time to work on it. I’m grateful I’ve finally had the time to sit down and finally create it.
