I'm starting a series of Beauty shots to warm up the winter. I'm trying different retouching styles and adding some lines of color to play with compositions. For this shot I worked with a great Make Up Artist named Jarrett. He's super cool, fun, easy going and talented. You cannot ask more.  You can see some of his work at www.jarrettbrandonartistry.com 
Our Model was Stanislava, an amazing Russian beauty as you can see in the images. Great energy and wonderful to photograph. She just arrived to N.Y. a few months ago and I'm sure she'll have a great modeling career. 
I will be shooting through all December so keep near to see all the new work.

This is is from a series of photographs documenting some of the PERFORMA biennial. The man had a Sound MAchine which is a copy of the sound Machines from the 20's of last Century. He would move the handles to make sounds that follow the images. Quite an interesting experience.
