Model: Samantha Yuhas
Taken October 2014, State College PA
Sami, who lived down the street from my old apartment, had recently found a gorgeous, brand-new Vera Wang wedding dress at a thrift store for about $25, and thought it would be fun to run around in it with a mask from Sleep No More. We went to a playground near us and photographed after school one day. I always loved the creepy juxtaposition of the blurry kids and Sami’s strange posing. It’s a subject I revisited a few years later.
