Richard van Weyden is an actor from Germany. He had grown a full beard for his current film role as a monk. We met on the street when he came from shopping at a market. By coincidence I had my camera with me and we spontaneously decided to take some pictures. I loved the surrounding. It looked like L.A. and the mood contrasted the medieval film set. Richard also liked the idea of a cool dude walking down Mulholland Drive on a fine sunny lazy afternoon.
