Jordan + Water, El Mirage Dry Lake Bed, November, 2015


After the wonderful benefit at the Cleveland Print Room last month I finally had the chance to scan the film for Jordan, and another wonderful model from my time in California. While time could have tested their patience, they were kind enough to give me an extra month!

In this image Jordan allowed herself to be drenched in water, more than a few times since her hair dried so quickly under the late afternoon sun. She, along with her mother Vickie, were wonderful to work with under such circumstances. The wind was blowing hard, and the sun was strong. Yet they endured and allowed us to make timeless images at the same time.

She is a sister to the girls posted just an hour ago, for her image was made with the same camera, the same film and by the same photographer. She is of course a sister to them without all of these variables, but for me the bond is through photography.



Note: This image was made with a Hasselblad 555 ELD/180 mm lens onto Fuji Neopan Acros 100 ISO film.
