« This photo was taken during the making of my feature film THE BALLAD OF GENESIS AND LADY JAYE from 2004 to 2011. It was taken in Genesis’s home where I shot most of my film. She lived in a beautiful old Brooklyn house. It was a very hot day and she kept making fun at my dress which she suddenly took and put on her as a neck-piece, then took my mushroom light and used it as a prop. I painted her face white when I saw the look of Genesis and here is the result. »
