I remember seeing Voon swing dancing at the Dreamland Beach Party a few months ago and it wasn’t until the Jazz Lawn Party that Michelle Coursey introduced me to him. Voon is such a friendly and energetic person, quickly offering me to camp around his area if I didn’t have a place to sit. It was my first time attending the Jazz Lawn Party at Governor’s Island, so my focus wasn’t photographing as many people, but enjoying the event and getting to know several of the attendants.

While admiring the vintage cars on display, I visualized an idea and proposed it to Voon. We couldn’t find the owner of the vintage Ford truck for permission, so instead shot several photos very quickly hoping no one yelled at us. I even had to sprint to the other side of the fence because it was impossible getting a good frame with such limited space! Overall, it was fun and I found Voon’s vintage outfit amazing. He mentioned about his contemplation on whether to preserve new deadstock pieces or risk ruining/damaging them. I can imagine the difficultly tearing the tag off to wear new and collective items from the 1930’s/40’s, but I’m glad he did for the event.
