Luminous Horrors

We spoke in colors. The warmer gradients sharp and forward while the cool blues and purple hues leaned effortlessly against the wall. They converged wildly over skin.

This photo shoot was truly a collaboration among friends.  Driving from NYC’s Chinatown through Time Square, the four of us found ourselves twirling around a hot-tub in an hourly motel in Yonkers. It was Mei’s first time visiting New York. The indescribable feeling of first experiencing the Big City bled into this collaboration: the feeling of constriction, the horrors and escape from sensory overload, exhaustion, and the most frightening thing of all – being alone with your own thoughts.
