Portrait of Jaqi
This is Jaqi, Ido’s friend. I met them both at the AV Motoplex Motocross Ride Park. Every time I pass this facility, I assumed the guys riding were 12 or 13. But they really are men. I guess people flying into Fox Field think they are ants.
Jaqi is also Israeli, but unlike Ido, who is originally from Holon, a city, Jaqi made a point about being from a settlement in the South. That means he is from the desert and is probably very comfortable in Antelope Valley in the Summer. He currently lives in Tarzana, CA, USA. That’s not on the beach either. Jaqi and Ido don’t know each other from Israel, or from LA, but from Motocross.
I like this pose. It makes a sweet portrait. I didn’t ask for a pose, and certainly not this one, but Jaqi saw me shooting pictures while he was changing his footwear, and gave me a double thumbs up and a great smile. This is him, no acting, no modeling, just him.
