This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting Victor Ross – he’s been on my wish-list to shoot for…..well, forever. I don’t imagine that there are many folks lucky enough to walk around looking like he does – with that extraordinary and distinctive, freckled face, sitting atop an extraordinary and distinctive, un-freckled physique. He is often photographed nearly-nekkid, for good reason. Oh, and he’s also – it figures – smart and funny and a painter and a good mid-western boy with remarkable personal style (especially for a good mid-western boy). And he’s a damned strong model.
Both of Victor’s books – L.A. and NYC, are chock-full of beautiful shots, and yet, both are suspiciously bereft of jumpsuits. It’s unseemly. And so a jumpsuit story seemed like the right and natural thing to do. I wish I could take credit for the banana, but of course, it was his idea….
