It’s really doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes you just need a big empty space, a single piece of furniture… and a wonderfully emotive model, like my good friend Anoush.
I had access to a large unfinished space in the Streeterville neighborhood in Chicago and arranged to meet her there. It’s fun to play in a large expanse of nothingness.
Off along one bare wall was a sofa. The only piece of furniture that had been moved in at this point. Anoush took her position on it and began creating a beautiful series of poses that were tremendous fun to compose with.
I decided to use the negative space of the high ceiling to give her graceful movement added visual interest along the bottom of the frame. I really loved how her raised arms push your eye up into the empty space.
Thank you Anoush for collaborating on a simple minimalist concept, taken to a wonderful place.
