Marne Lucas, Chicago 1996 - This was photographed on the day I first met @marnelucas (AKA Gina Velour) who was visiting Chicago from her then-home Portland OR. To say it was an important day in my artistic development is an understatement. For the rest of the '90s, we collaborated numerous times in various cities creating some of my most memorable early images. On this particular day, we met at my apartment on Division St., and we set out for Goose Island which was on the other side of the Kennedy Expressway from me. At that time, Goose Island was a mostly abandoned wasteland of old warehouses, factories, and destroyed buildings. It was my playground for photoshoots for many years! Anyway, we shot a roll of film there and then headed to Wrigleyville to meet up with my friend @scarlettamaris. It was at Scarlet's place that we shot a second roll of film from which this image was taken. This particular shot was taken while I was sitting on the floor tending to some camera stuff and happened to look up and saw Marne sitting relaxed on the couch with this amazing sunlight hitting her through the window. I told her not to move, grabbed my Mamiya, and took this photo. Two years later, it appeared in my first book "The Beauty of Fetish" (Edition Stemmle, 1998).
