Claudia + Hair, Havana, Cuba, Summer of 2012


Simply put she can do no wrong.

Her images are made in the uncontrolled environment of the streets, without a formal studio and with only natural light. She lacks an assistant, someone to manage her hair, etc. In a moment's notice she is ready to be photographed and flows through a session without the need for much of a break.

She never gives me the same expression and position combinations, and finds it within herself to move without external input. This is our third year of documentation and hopefully many years lay ahead of us.

Note: this portrait was made with a Hasselblad 555 ELD/120 mm combination onto Fuji Neopan Acros film, then scanned with an Epson V700 for this presentation.
