I am very lucky to have a friend as photogenic and fun to shoot as Radhika Vaz. A few years ago, we did a photoshoot together.
The funnest part of the shoot was giving her characters to play to get her into the mood of the photoshoot. For these photos she was channeling a singer, maybe Billy Holiday, who lived in Havana, then moved to Miami around the 1940s. We weren’t concerned with historical accuracy just with having fun and taking photos.
These are some of my favorite photos and what we did with them later to promote Radhika’s Show, Unladylike.
