Saskia Thode is very charismatic.
She also poses this striking look.
She and I met in some bar in Brooklyn some years ago. (such as New York moment) Her long braided blonde hair with blue eyes in black outfit immediately caught my eyes.
There is something about her I tried to capture this time.

She has been working on this over 110 hours.
When I saw her tattoo on her back -especially a man hanging in the center I could not help asking her questions!
She explains what she has

Last week Marianna came into a studio in Brooklyn to be photographed. I started to work on “character portrait”. Try to capture personality using simple set up.
Marianna is a young talented fashion designer lives in New York. Her creativity is beyond. I found her very interesting. Sometimes she can be unpredictably mischievous. She showed up with her rabbit hair wigs. I don’t have to say this but she loves rabbit and her birthday was Easter.
