These photos were taken back in 2011 of Valya at Hotel Chelsea in NY.
This was one of those shoots that had something about it that I love, but can't put my finger on. I'm sure there isn't just one simple explanation as to why, but working with Valya is definitely one of the reasons. I had been wanting to work with her for a while and I got my chance when I visited NYC. Working with her helped me understand my work more as well give me a better comprehension of the diversity of models out there. It's hard not to be a little enamored by that city as well.
All the photos are slides shot on 35mm or medium format.
