On my penultimate night, I met up with Valya, a model from Brooklyn. We had discussed concepts ahead of time and got to creating photos right away. Valya gave me her best stuff to photograph. One of her many qualities I appreciated were her nuanced emotions and expressions that while subtle, told volumes.
Valya had a photo shoot in Baltimore that morning, caught the train back to New York and met me for our session. Her work ethic and passion for creating erotic, conceptual art and experimenting at the end of a full day shows how important this is to her.
This ends my small series reminiscing on my trip to New York last year. Goddamn, I love that city, its museums, buildings, culture, attitude and the people I met and created art with there. My fellow students, instructor, Valya and Moon, and the thousands of characters in my own New York love story that I saw every day made it a life-changing trip. Thanks.
Valya's Blog - Highly recommended.
