This is the third time Heather Monique and I have shot together, so I wanted to try something a bit different. I had some beautiful Patrice Catanzaro lingerie provided by Darkest Fox in NYC to shoot with, and I knew she’d look terrific in it. Separately I’d seen the video of the Pirelli Calendar 2017 with Peter Lindbergh and it really struck a chord – to reject perfection in favor of real natural beauty.
I got his book, “Shadows on the Wall” and fell in love with the dark, half-hidden feeling of his photographs, and wanted to try that mood when shooting lingerie. Heather was on board with the idea, so we went to work, and I love the results. The final images have minimal editing, to try and keep that real/raw feeling that I love so much. I hope you do too.
