Exploring the intimate connection between subject and artist, photographer Chris Craymer has compiled his favorite photo shoots of those who inspire him: Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Fialho posing in open windows, bon vivants working in their personal studios, and moody model couple Cory Bond and Bekah Jenkins sprawling on vintage cars.

To fully capture his subjects, Craymer paired each portrait with an interview in his new book, Chris Craymer: From the Heart, out May 1. “I hold you all as shining examples of how to live a life that is ‘from the heart,’” Craymer writes in the introduction.
