Tallulah + Starsi, Age 12
Canon EOS 5D Mark II | 26mm | 1/125 | f/5.6
Tallulah Novogratz, 12, and her best friend, Starsi Marie Howell drenched in paint in the Novogratz family home tub. I wanted to depict the strong bond and playful intimacy between best girlfriends during those vulnerable teen years – where you’re not quite a child, but not yet an adult. Tallulah was the art director of this shoot and came up with the idea to use paint. I should have known that the Novogratz’s 12-year-old would be a better art director than me.
