I can't remember the model's name, I wish that I could, we only shot once and I haven't heard from her since. This image and several others were shot the day after my birthday in 2010 and I was feeling rather low and uninspired. My mother had died on my birthday 3 years earlier and I had given up celebrating or even acknowledging the day. Still do. The model contacted me out of the blue and asked if I wanted to collaborate. I knew of her and though I was uninspired I agreed. She basically took control of the concepts, singing and walking around the studio, finding props and material and created her own ideas. I basically just lit the scenes and composed the images. I've always been happy with the results and the images sent me on a new trajectory that still resonates in my work to this day. I'll post a few more images in the coming days.
