What did you notice during the photo sessions?
If the models had been working for a year or more, you put a camera in front of them, and their eyes squint, and their head turns, and they become a little alluring. Some models would even direct their mothers — “Tilt your chin down.” I’d then ask them not to pose like a sexy fashion model but to pose as their mother’s daughter. I’d ask both mother and daughter to look at the camera as if they were listening to each other, as if they were having a long distance conversation and the other one is speaking. I’d try to get a face that wasn’t designed to affect the photograph, that wasn’t telling the camera what it’s supposed to see.
