Light Table: Portrait of the Day

.

During the Spring of 1993,  I  tested models for how well they could move for a new series of fashion portraits I produced to present to editors I was working with  in New York during that period. I was heavily committed to black and white film then and  high ISO shooting at the time – which made the stop action effect on the above photo more distinctive. The effect was a direct result of the technical approach I was accustomed to and became known for through most of the nineties.  It was a windy day in Philadelphia, and I had a distinct advantage of working with an experienced dancer, who was cast from a local agency with long hair; while being photographed on the rooftop of my studio. The setting for the shoot proved to be an intriguing  aspect of the photo, which was forever frozen in time. This is part of a body of work entitled, “Portfolio Classics 1993 to 1995”.
