This is one of my favourite portraits. It’s from my first shoot with Robert Miller, where I was doing the make-up and modeling with a variety of costumes and wigs for a “pin-up” style shoot. This photograph is in fact a crop of a photograph of me relaxed and momentarily unaware of the camera, walking across the studio to fetch a new hairdo, my hair was disheveled from the violent way I’d pulled off the last wig.
