I have been continually working on content for a book project, for way to many years now. The problem is finding willing model participants, enthusiastic about letting their guard down and be photographed in non-glamorous manner, vulnerable, real. While the project always drops to the back burner or forgotten altogether, sometimes the content just materializes.
Roarie, she is a great creative partner and always down for whatever. She suggested we shoot before i left on my last trip. The resulting images are a product of our effortless collaboration and a perfect fit for my project.
Roarie is one of the best models around, it doesn't matter what i ask, she's always down for creating anytime anywhere. Rain would typically tank another shoot, but with Roarie it creates an opportunity for more unique images.
Realized w/Nikon F3hp, Nikon 50mm f/1.4 and some Ilford HP +5
