Have you ever seen a picture of an exploding pollen tree? It’s a dramatic visual and the inspiration behind this amazing series of shots with Coco Rocha for Natural Beauty.
It was so exciting for me to work with Coco as she just gives you everything. There’s also nothing more exciting for me as a photographer than to be able to work with someone who can really move. We covered her (and the entire studio) with explosions of colourful powder. The powders are actually the same as those used in India during the Hindu Holi festival to celebrate the colors of Spring. As she moved her body, the powder moved with her allowing me to capture that sense of drama and real-time motion.
