Geoffrey, facing us, was English, Jaime Chilean. They met at Harvard Graduate School of Design, where they studied landscape architecture, were roommates and fell in love with the same woman. Jaime, with his daring ideas, spirituality and foreignness, won. The story of his union with Esmée is one I spent three years capturing, one of my all-time favorites. Great photographs, lovely people.
Here are some photographs to give you a feel of their lives.
