I tend to work with models who are more on the artistic than the fashion side of things.
When I'm looking to try out ideas for myself, I look to the esoteric and quirky - ideally eccentric people. Still, when I met Alexandra there was a sort of curious way about her that you don't often see in fashion models and I knew I had to find out what was going on beneath the surface as the internal person is almost as important to me as the external (in my work).
In this simple series I attempted to break many of my own rules while making sure as I often do that the model gets something they want out of it too. Not always an needle to thread but this current lighting setup has really worked for me lately.
