This is the first day shooting the NY Garbage Dress, in a loading dock with great graffiti near the art studio I rented in Brooklyn from fellow artist Rob Kimmel. The first challenge is getting me up onto the dock in the dress! Here I am being hoisted up with a little help from my friends, volunteers T’ai Jamal Hanna and Jay Loebscher.
I did not attach the train until we got to the shoot location to help with ease of movement.
Volunteering to shoot the NY Garbage Dress is friend and amazingly talented New York photographer Layo Mayoli
Some final loading dock shots
This pigeon behind my head hung out the whole shoot, protecting its nearby nest.
Now we are trying a seated shot, with some styling help from T’ai.
Manning the video camera on the left is volunteer Katrina Stachowski.
Some final seated shots…
…and getting back down!
T’ai making sure everything looks good for some street shots, taking advantage of the beautiful architecture of the next door building.
Layo in action!
