I photographed Sara while she dressed and did her makeup, surrounded by things she loves and uses to perform. I'm very pleased with the outcome. I've been working on prints of some of these in my darkroom. Here are some negative scans from the set, followed by the three Brassai images that I drew my inspiration from.
I'm excited to have another wonderful muse to add to my ever growing collection!

Great Brassai photo books! Click on any of them to find cheaper used copies. I highly recommend the Secret Paris of the 30's. One of my most prized books.
