Gypsy / Eden

with one comment

San Francisco, CA 2011

When I first met Gypsy, she was living in a weekly hotel in the North Beach district of San Francisco. After a few months of working at the Roaring 20’s, she headed to the east coast in order to take care of some health issues. Six months later, she moved back to SF – this time in an apartment in the Richmond district. This is only a glimpse into her home life and nowhere near the final series of images of her but I figured that this particular shoot was worth posting.

Michelle

Alameda / San Francisco, CA 2011

After a night of shooting at the Roaring 20’s, I hopped on a bus with Michelle and headed over to Alameda where she is currently living. We stayed up til the wee hours of the morning and talked about our night, our past, and life in general. That afternoon after conversing some more over breakfast, I asked her to continue her day as if I wasn’t there. She explained that she doesn’t spend much time at home and that she would take me to her second home – the mall. Michelle is a self proclaimed shopaholic.” I have a serious problem. If I want something, nothing is going to stop me.”  – even if that means having to work double shifts at the club to make up for what she spent. Because I got to get to know her better, I’m not completely satisfied with this series of images. There are a few missing components that would accurately portray who she is – luckily, I got invited for another sleep over so consider this part one.

Gypsy – Baby

Gypsy – Eden / Baby – Anne

San Francisco, CA 2011

I’m currently working with two dancers for the “at home” part of my project. I haven’t gotten the images that I want to complete their mini series but here are some previews.

The first image is Gypsy who you might recognize from this diptych. She recently moved back to SF from Baltimore after recovering from health issues. She is now living in an apartment instead of weekly hotels. The image below is of Baby, whose condo I went to this past weekend. She lives in Vallejo, CA with her pimp and son, Emilian. Because of some custody issues, I didn’t have a chance to meet her son but was told that I am welcome to visit whenever I wanted to. I am planning on returning as soon as possible.
