    The Afro Puff Chronicles Shoot

    Hey, Afro Puff Fam! It is with great excitement that I am releasing the pictures from Afro Puff Chronicles’ first photoshoot! I want to thank Annie Li, Dan Hu, all my lovely friends, and last but not least, my AMAZING parents, who helped me pull off this massive undertaking.

(You might recognize the background from our opening video; we both filmed and took photos here!) So, without further ado, here is the final product! Yours, Tyler Newman
