A couple of years ago, a friend of mine said that she was interested in becoming a model and asked whether I would take some shots of her so that she could practice.
We played around with poses and decided to do a daylight shoot without the aid of flash.
One of the ideas we played with was the use of a headscarf, I think that I had recently been given a book of photos by Steve McCurry and was inspired by his headscarf photos. His photo of an Afghani woman uses a red headscarf, which we didn’t have.
But, Fede – who was modelling that day, managed to pull something quite special off that day.
