Projects Women I've Shot

A Body of work: 14 Minutes in Addis Ababa

14 Minutes in Addis Ababa was shot at dawn on an overnight layover in Ethiopia while flying from Mombasa to Cape Town. 
The 3 star hotel (with a piece of photocopied paper and tape masking a once-held fourth star in the vague hope that it could one day be recovered) was strangely lush and neglected in equal measures. 

Having missed the connecting bus to the airport, my travel companions and I found ourselves with 20 minutes to spare. Between capturing the first and the final image, only 14 minutes elapsed. In these moments, we entered the limbo space of the in-between: the distance between arrivals and departures, wakefulness and dreaming.

The shoot was somewhat unplanned, hasty and fortuitous. A chance occurrence that unfolded in a crease of a bygone era.

#81 – Panties
Lumo-orange, Mr.Price g-string. This is part of a three pack (all lump shades).  They came out just after Hanky Panky launched in SA and I think they’re a bit of a rip off but very comfy fit.

#82 – Bustier/Bra
Size small, CottonOn stretch bustier with lace back detail. This piece was bought for the Miss July Playmate shoot which was done in my studio…all the pieces were sourced pretty last minute as the shoot was scheduled so late!

#83 – Lingerie Set
Black, tasselled La Senza lingerie. These came from the once-apon-a-time La Senza sale shop. They’re a hard piece to work with in a shoot as the tassels need to be in order.
