It’s not as egocentric as it sounds
I have worked with, met, and been inspired by so many talented people…
I wondered how best to showcase this wonderful aspect of my life.
It occurred to me that the one thing all these people have in common is… Well… Me! Why not celebrate them each week, with a new post highlighting the impact they have made on my life.
This week I’m featuring the incredibly talented and humble Fred Fraser. From big account advertising, to fashion, to print, Fred’s remarkable work has been featured in a number of places.
His original concept was to shoot me for a series of Zeotropes, where I would appear in the shower. No stranger to nudity, (obviously) I signed on right away!
Our initial images completed, we agreed it would be fun to play with something definitively “Tita” and moved into the studio.
Obviously, it included cupcakes…
For our final shot, I had a very specific idea in mind. I wanted to do something that would “make me very uncomfortable”. Something I’d “never done before”. I wanted it to be gritty. I wanted to get dirty. While Fred is familiar with nude content, I could tell he was somewhat apprehensive, as he awaited my description…
To eat a cupcake, and “Stare it down the way Sasha Grey stares at an erect penis”.
“Who’s Sasha Grey?”
Do you love it?!?
