  • Model: Desiree Manly
  • Location: McCook, Illinois
  • Hair Styling and Makeup by: Val Kozlovitser

Sometimes things just come together and work out perfectly. I was shooting with the wondrous Desiree Manly late in the afternoon in an industrial-ish part of the western suburbs of Chicago. We found a very old train car near the side of the road where we were shooting. It had been spray painted a flat silver and also appeared to be rusting from underneath the paint. The windows had been boarded up and also spray painted the same flat silver. In the afternoon light, the color of the train car appeared to be almost identical to the color of the dress that Desiree was wearing. The rust was almost identical to the color of her hair (and very similar to her eye makeup). It looked absolutely fantastic. And so we shot and so we got.
