Model + Wet Hair, Artemisa, Cuba, Summer of 2013


The day after our session with the ballerinas, Alejandro and I decided to take up an invitation by a modeling school an hour or so from the city. We traveled there the week prior but found only clouds, so we filmed the modeling and headed back to the city.

On this day we decided that we can make it out to the school and back to the beach to work with one of our main families. Alejandro placed the call and all were as excited as we were. When we arrived they were ready, with dark and timeless outfits as well. We had sunlight and plenty of it for our reflector since we were thinking of working in the early afternoon.

We set the gear up and started, with Alejandro holding the reflector. The young woman took turns, and we worked for perhaps 30 minutes before deciding to wet everyone's hair. All took to the idea beautifully and the portrait below is one such example.
