“9:30 p.m. November 1 2009, Rowley, up to his old tricks debuts his spoof collection ” BA- BILL” inspired by past Contessa images and shot by Babak. ” Salon Magazine Jan. 2010.
I thought it was a great idea when Salon Magazine approached me to make a spoof collection based on my 2004 photos entries to the Contessa awards. I exaggerated some of the elements that were in the original collection to get the point a cross but did not use the same back grounds or lighting as I thought that would have been too simple and obvious. I enjoyed making this collection with all its little nuances .
