Every once in a while, when the interest sparks, I collaborate with my friend, fashion photographer and model, Daniel Martin Noval

I collaborated with him on a series of photos, using Lulus.com clothes, when we went to Hawaii for Spring break last March and posted them on our blog

This time Daniel wrote to me about an idea to photograph and film a dress as it was being deconstructed and torn to pieces. I happened to have an entire box of delicate cotton gauze that I could use to create a gown that would look ornate and also be easy to pull apart, shred, and ultimately destroy. 

Here are the photographs and the video that resulted from our collaboration…

All in all, I thought the outcome captured this specific model in a thoughtful and intriguing way.

Almost as if she was battling with herself on film.
