Cveta is as multifaceted as they come. Artist, enterpreneur, dancer, actor, player, shaman, joker, smoker, friend. Cveta can talk about crying in an actors’ class because the dog she had to describe “was too ugly” or about the deeper levels of psychology of self-preservation, or about farting monkeys or whatever sillycity (i know, i just made it up) will make us both laugh loudly. With the ease that comes with life experience, the confidence from knowing what you’re worth and the humour that comes from not taking yourself too seriously, she is great to take pictures of (ok, her beauty helps too). She insisted we take pictures of her eating because “mom will be happy to see I am”, but also played dead and a dog and a panda while we were shooting. I love how her hair turns from red to midnight black, her asian features and her ring too. I still have one more shoot planned with her, and I think it’ll turn out nice, but that I leave for another time.
I am so blessed we ended up at the same time in the same place and with similar mindsets – a sunny summer in New York, just as I started missing a girlfriend to confide in. As someone said – summer is where the girls go barefoot, and their hearts are just as free as their toes. This is where me and her were those couple of months, and I hope you can feel it through my lens.
