Photographed in Times Square and a subway station off 47th Street, this fashion editorial plays on the mystery of the woman and the vibrancy of New York. A story of curiosity, power, and flirtation. The model, Anika Stewart, drew inspiration from the 1970s in her hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. During this time Times Square was regarded as gritty, dark and desperate. Though everything dark isn’t ugly, and with grit one can see details. Often isolated against bright buildings and string lights, Anika shows an optimistic revision of Times Square: dark skin against a dark sky, but much light, life, and lust.
