Ben & Gina in the Bluegrass

The Blog

The daily, and somewhat random, musings of the FOLK editorial team. From the journeys, to the vlogs, to the behind-the-scenes-into-the-office moments of the team that brings FOLK to life. 

Ben & Gina in the Bluegrass

Ben Ashby

 

Gina and I have been friends for a very long time. As I continue to share the back story of FOLK I would be remiss to not introduce her. Gina and I met when I was a freshman in college. We were both part of the same campus ministry. As I was developing my photography skills Gina, a Lexington native, would take me and some of our friends out exploring the horse farms, parks, and nature around Lexington. We would journey out to Shaker Village every spring and Boyd's Orchard every fall. All while taking photos just for the sake to taking photos. This was before Instagram. We were basically doing it just to have new Facebook profile pictures. At the time we had no idea this weekend hobby would lead to the creation of FOLK, but over time the idea of creating the brand formed over lunches and hikes and days spent at Keeneland. Since those days with cheap point and shoot cameras Gina has become one of my closest friends, whenever we're both in Lexington we make a point to meet up to take fresh photos and to talk about my life in Beaver Dam and her's in Oxford, Mississippi. This series was shot in May at various spots in Lexington, Midway, and Versailles, Kentucky.
