Another week, another photoshoot
Going back to a time period I wasn’t around for
But I want a magazine look
ideas, concepts, but tryna keep my head in a book
Capturing the moment is not as easy as it looks
I want motion, I want movement
I have to see what my dreams meant
To me, to us, to the ‘90s
Bringing it back to the future
To capture the beautiful picture
For someone without a cure.
This particular photoshoot was based on vibes inspired by the culture of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. That has always been my favorite period to recreate, since I was never really a part of it. Because of my obsession with colors, I partnered up with Bowtie Jones, a fashion designer and model, to complete the vision I had in mind. Creating the ‘90s Retrograde look definitely took some time, because I allowed and trusted him to add his own creativity and style to it. Before then, I’d been so cut up with maintaining my B average in school that I barely had time to shoot. So, I wanted to enjoy taking pictures again and most importantly, come back ten times stronger. I couldn’t put aside my dreams; I had to recreate my vision of how I felt the ‘90s culture would translate in the present day. We can never forget the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Overall, I was happy with the outcome. Moreover, I’ve learned that it is important for me to have the perfect model and collaborator for my shoots, because they play a huge part in my visions becoming true. Thank you, Bowtie.
