What was your initial response to the project?
Excitement!! It was a combination of many of my favorite things – black and white photography, classic films, and the chance to be someone so different from myself.
What was your reaction to the final result?
Oh my gosh! This is hands down the best photo shoot of my life. The pictures are so beautiful, and my favorite thing is that they don’t look like me! I am really not the kind of person that would ever want to have photos of myself hanging up at home, that’s just weird to me, but there is one of the Gloria Swanson photos that I definitely want to have a print of. Ralph did such an incredible job capturing the characters we were portraying.
