Kisses from Danish model Line Brems after Shiatzy Chen SS 2016, Paris
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.

American model Avery Blanchard after Max Mara, Prada and Fendi SS 2016, Milan
One of my favorite new personalities in a long time, Miss Blanchard is from Asheville, North Carolina. This is her second full season as a catwalker. Unlike many of the other models (no shade) also walking on the international runways, I find Avery to be delightful to meet in the streets and at castings because of her positive, upbeat and bubbly personality. It shows a gracious young woman who is not just a pretty face.
