Daniella

Uncategorized

There had been buzz about a new Amazon complex and development around the Anable Basin, so my friend Daniella suggested we do a shoot around there. The idea of transformation – her own body, the surrounding area – was a fascinating concept to explore. I had discovered a junkyard closeby and thought it would be a fun place to take photos.

The day we shot these a random blizzard came through. Daniella is a performance artist and the weather didn’t faze her one bit. She bore it all. Absolutely one of my favourite portrait sessions. And the development was scrapped soon after.

Portraits

My friend Rhiannon is one of my go-to models when I have an art idea. She has a great look that transcends time and she’s always open for interesting ideas. We shot this series in Gantry Park, Queens, along the East River. The old Pepsi-Cola sign threw off an amazing neon red light, and with her 1940s clothes we managed to throw together a fun modern film noir vibe. I love shooting mini stories like this, especially with actors, and would like to explore more of it.
