One of the things I love about Fantome 8 is that even mild contrasts between sun patches and shadow result in very dynamic images. In this picture I used that to my advantage by shooting my favourite Hong Kong feature: the iron store curtains!

Control of the models over their images is a very important aspect of this project for me. I fully realise that posing naked is not a trivial endeavour, and I’ve heard too many stories about callous photographers. All this to say that in the initial selection of shots from this session, the model wasn’t sure about sharing this one so it wasn’t shared. But a couple of months ago, Lara changed her mind, which made me really happy because I adore this image.
