My model Tanny Cruz is half English, half Mexican and aged 22 like myself. I was drawn to her naturally beautiful and striking look, she is a babe! I like to photograph girls of different ethnicities, shapes and sizes so to represent diversity and an open minded attitude towards not only the fashion industry, but also towards society today and the pressures that women are put under to look and act a certain way, for this reason I wrote down Tanny's chest 'OPEN MIND' in Japanese. I shot in the studio but created a relaxed atmosphere, bringing an editorial vibe into a living room set up, bringing fashion back down to earth. I love photographing women's bodies - a woman should be allowed to flaunt her stuff without being sexualised!
