I met Takha on a shooting in Paris with another model I shot previously. I hired these two Ukrainian models for a personal project. I wasn’t particularly nervous.

Not long ago I was living in the heart of Tuscany, and there, I would be doing what most people in Tuscany do–drink wine.

The city looks abandoned when you walk alone through absolutely deserted streets with a visibility of only about 10-20 meters, and you shy away from the silhouettes in the distance. Monumental high-rise buildings are a legacy of a long-lost civilization, and the lights are just phantoms, figment of the imagination, which doesn’t want to admit its loneliness.

If only we would realize how powerful we are: not from an ego centric or self-serving perspective; rather, in an understanding of all we can do & be by getting out of our own way! There is a quote in the original Star Wars films from wise Yoda, “You must UNLEARN what you have learned…” which is the crux of this dilemma
I think it’s time we melt that ice. Speak the words. Make the eye contact. Pop our heads out from inside our tortoise shells. Dare to dance outside of our comfort zones. Just think of how much positive energy you could accumulate! Contemplate how many people you might warm with your unabashed, human sincerity.
