It might be hard to create something original in a hotel room, there are so many good inspiring pictures out there. Still, I find the whole experience nice, intense, it’s some sort of a safe place my brain relates to really well. Maybe it’s because I started from there, I’ve never been a proper fashion model, I’ve been seeking intimacy since the beginning and a hotel room is perfect to create that feeling without putting into it too much of yourself. I can be whoever I want, which means that I am just many faces of the same person, myself.
So that nostalgia might be the same, but I am always different, every time there is something new, because it doesn’t depend on me only, the entire set is up to the photographer, so I just go with the flow and see what inspires me, I try to feel that person, not to satisfy his artistic needs only, but to create something authentic together.
With Justin it felt timeless, more sensual and not as melancholic as usual, to me. We spent a couple or three hours immersed in great natural light and we just followed each other’s ideas. He had some nice intuitions and he allowed me to be myself and to do anything I felt like doing. I moved from one corner to the other one, from the bed to the chair, in front of the mirror or next to the window, it’s all been natural, like something I would usually do in a hotel room if alone, those moments I would take for myself to explore my own beautyI will never be tired of this kind of a shooting process, I’m pretty sure it’s something I will miss in the future, as I do modeling less and less, because it’s hard to find people that may be on my same page. Justin is definitely someone I hope to meet again in the future, as he’s been sensitive and respectful towards me as a woman and as model.
These pictures are just the result of a short encounter between two creative souls.
