Shake Me Down

Colorado Model Jessica L


Inspiration comes from strange places. I've always loved the "great mistakes" or "unintended master pieces" and remembered some contact sheets I had seen of Marilynn Monroe with the red wax marker x's and scribbles. To me these are some of the best images of her ever. So I studied a bit and have been looking for a way to reference those without blatantly ripping it off. Anyway… this is in that spirit... the intense color on top of a contrasty black and white. The unusual snap IMO is the only way it works.


Hope you like it.
