Latina Angel

Easily my youngest and most vulnerable model ever.  After getting comfortable with each other, we settled to the business of art.  That small chip she carried on her shoulders fell off, and she began to trust me.  After the session when I showed her what I had gotten, she turned to me and said this like “real art”.  I told her there was a difference to working with me, I have your back still.

Starfall

Taken at the King William Fair in San Antonio, Tx in around 1995.  Traditional film and processing of high speed film, shot on the street with no special lighting.  I love this shot in the series on the fair and the colorful events.  Stay tuned!

My story:

Each little star is nurtured and protected on the vine-like colored coils of light.  As they mature, and grow a ribbon slowly descend and guide each individual star as its launched into space, the ribbon snaps back, the ribbon curls…., slowly  over time the ribbons unfurl, their tension is dissipated…, they flutter in the space breeze looking for their own individual star somewhere out there shooting across the sky.

North Country

Still north of Toronto, she had never posed before for this kind of photography.  She had a natural way of moving and thinking.  Shortly after I ran head on with a pile of problems, most of my own making, we never got the chance to work together again.  Huge loss.
