Model: Angelica Rose
I had such a lovely time with Angelica. I picked her up at her Echo Park home and it immediately felt comfortable. We drove to the location in Mt.Washington, walked around, talked about photography, film development, only owning black clothes, it was rad. We went through the clothes she brought in her cute blue vintage suitcase and I completely fell in love and inspired by a cape. We started shooting, enjoying the awesome smell of nature. Angelica had this really cute laced bra piece that I wanted to get some shots of her in, as we began those we were approached by an old white man who was so angered and offended by Angelica’s clothes and her body. After bantering him for a bit as he became more angry and throwing a fit we were threatened to get the cops called on us and we left.
Moments like those make me love shooting even more, it is completely outrages how offended people can be over the human body so I love working with others who don’t give a fuck. Free the body people!
We weren’t done so we continued our shooting adventure and these are the images we made; inspired by Angelica and who she is, a photographer, a woman, and a human exploring life <3
