Jovi Vai in action – Union Square and Washington Square park, they are a few 100 feet away from each other but they have completely different feel and character, even with in the parks there are different pockets of people. Union square is some ways like “Speakers corner ” in London England where people gather to protest, rap, perform and some times debate. You always meet interesting people at street debates. Free speech is an iq test!

One of my favorite collection which I Photographed in London England on a Road Master double decker bus – one of the old London buses – I had traveled on them as a kid and always found the aesthetics to be very unique. I Photo-ed most of the models with natural light but London gets dark at 4:00 pm in October so i had to plug in a set of strobes after that. I worked with a great team at Van Michael Salon, we had good times and high energy. Thanks to Van Council for the opportunity – I Made a home made / BTS film of some of our time at the shoot, with the final images at the end of the video. BABAK Photos
