Moon Marie and I have worked together once before today’s shoot. In fact, she was one of the first, if not THE very first nude art model I’ve ever worked with photographically. It was just about a year ago since we worked together, and I’ve grown a bit in my experience and vision working with nude figure models. In that year I discovered the work of Kwentonza, who is as striking a model as Moon, but communicates in quite a different manner.
Interestingly enough, Moon and Kwentonza were aware of one another’s work, which isn’t too hard to imagine. There aren’t a dizzying array of black models in the underground, so you’d only have to go so far before you happened upon either of these women.
