..September 2002 New York..
This shot was taken during the first portrait project Tracy and I shot. At the time, Tracy was in a theater production of Angels in America. About 2 years before Angels in America was made by HBO for tv.
The shot was inspired by the character she was playing, Harper. It was good to have my own vision of the play and character before it was produced for a tv audience.
It was the first time we seriously worked on shooting portraits. We hadn’t worked together for a year prior. After this portrait we worked almost non-stop for 5 years. Photographing constantly, finding locations around New York to remote areas in New Mexico.
