Jordan + Fabric, El Mirage Dry Lake Bed, California, November 1, 2015



Sometimes my work overseas spoils me, makes me see photography through the prisms of true acceptance and complete understanding. Then there are those times when such spirits here in the States also do the same for me.

This exquisite woman is one such example, as she responded to my casting call last week with incredible exuberance. Rather than letting days go between messages, she would reply very quickly and with precision. When asked to show me her wardrobe, she did so immediately and with visual examples sent.

Her beauty is only matched by her humility, a rare combination in my experience but one which has been demonstrated to me through the beautiful people in my portfolio. She is a sister to the girls in my work, and now even more so as her spirit passed the same glass elements on its way to the film plane over and over again during our session yesterday.


For this image she allowed us to work with a fabric placed over her face. The wind was blowing incredibly, and held the fabric in place perfectly. She was able to walk around, move her hands and still maintain her hidden facial features. All this she did with the most perfect attitude, a true pleasure to work with and look forward to for years to come.
