Evie + Victor

A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail from my friend Meredith about a photoshoot that she and her partner Spencer Richardson had planned for Spencer’s new line, Evie and Victor. (I had previously worked with Meredith and Spencer on their collaborative Powder Room line.) Feeling a bit out of the photography loop, I jumped on the opportunity. As a new upstart company, they were working on a tight budget, but were looking to collaborate with a group of different photographers and stylists for a blog series featuring “everyday” girls in their clothes. As the photographer, I had free reign in terms of location, so I decided on the wonderfully industrial Red Hook area of Brooklyn. The location fit the clothes and our amazing model fantastically. We shot in a rather desolate stretch of Columbia Ave near IKEA which, in addition to being surrounded by grain elevators, massive cargo ships, and factories, came ready with its own heroin-chic aesthetic: there were plenty of empty crack vials and syringes littered around the sidewalk. I was a little bit nervous that our group of designers and stylists might look a bit suspicious hanging around a bunch of factories, especially because we came with a giant U-Haul van, but the shoot went quite smoothly. We started around 10am and wrapped around 1. As a bit of a treat, Daniel and I headed to IKEA after for lunch and a bit of retail therapy.

    The model is beautiful and the clothes look wonderful on her, but I feel that there is a real lack of emotion and she looks most of the time like she is making a “duh” face. I would love to see her looking at the camera more like in the last shot which is by far the most memorable.
