The Lost Model Who Found Me

I just got an interesting email today from a woman who said I photographed her nude at Tyson in 1999-98. She said she never saw the photos and could she see them, she might want to buy one.

Though some sort of miracle I did enter her name into my data base of film I’ve shot and indeed it was 1999 and she was a department model and yes, I shot 11 rolls of 120 of her out at Tyson. I remember she was paid to model for my by the department/school and in those cases I do not give the models any photos.

We’re going to meet in the future to look at the contact sheets, perhaps she’ll buy a couple prints.
I just wonder, what made her think of tracking me down and asking about these photos all these years later. People are funny about nostalgia and their own histories.

Only 52 Days Until Mardi Gras 2018!

I often wonder after 26 years of photographing Mardi Gras if I do not have my full measure of drunken people exposing themselves on Bourbon street, and then I find one of these, its a street ballet of sorts, it all comes together as Cartier Bresson says for just a moment.
