A Wink And A Smile
I thought for awhile whether I should comment on the tragic death of Ruslana last week. News of her passing upset me dearly and I found it difficult to discuss with even family and friends. However, I had a number of people ask me about whether I knew her or had photographed her. I photographed her numerous times during fashion week, here are 2 from Fall 2006. I liked her because instead of all the blank stares I usually get from over exhausted models, she exhibited a personality, a wink, and then a smile during a candid shot while being interviewed. I'm not a writer, so I won't espouse at length on this tragedy, I wouldn't do it justice. I just wanted to share these images with you now that a little time has passed.
