Last Saturday I met with Layne to take some photographs. We ventured down into the abandoned basement of a building at my alma-matter, the University of the Arts. It's an old YMCA building and for years it's been left to deteriorate and crumble underneath classrooms and galleries. There are very few lights to navigate by, and we had to bump around in the dark until we came upon the occasional window. There's a pool and locker rooms down there all painted in bright colors left over from the 80's. It's really very large and confusing and we struggled to find our way around in the dark. Pipes rattled and strange noises came from every direction, which was pretty frightening at first, but you soon get used to the sounds of an old rotting place. Layne was a fantastic model to work with and I'm definitely looking forward to working with her again. I think she looks a bit like Faye Dunaway, don't you?
All these items will show up in my shop soon, by the way, so keep your eyes on it!
