Filipino American Marga Esquivel as a Flying Ninja Model after Akris SS 2016, Paris
Japanese model Mona Matsuoka was stretching after Pascal Millet SS 2016 to celebrate the start of Paris Fashion Week, which is the last destination of fashion month. 8 more days to go!
Continuing my project with models and lights, here is a series of 19 photos taken during Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 after the Versace, DSquared2 and Missoni shows. This collection of images is different from my previous series “Muses of Lights” in that the models were aware that I was capturing the light. I had less than a minute to capture the images before the girls had to run to their next rehearsal, show or fitting. All taken spontaneously and unphotoshopped, I gave the models some props and simple direction. In the end, all of the girls became active participants in the making of the photos. I am pleased to present a genuine and fun collaboration between artist and muses: Musing with Lights: MFW SS 2016.
