I knew the day I met Lubna that I wanted to photograph her. She wants to be a model so it’s a pretty good friendship we’ve struck upon. Of course we both are pretty rooted in real life and we’re very far from high-fashion photography but we like to pretend we know what we’re doing. It’s sort of like playing dress up.
Isn’t that what fashion photography is anyway?
I do hope she gets a real modeling contract someday. I know she could do it. I think the fact that she is muslim and needs to be modest could make her even more interesting. In the meantime, I’m happy to let her be my muse.
