I spent a “hotter than July” afternoon with my cousin/model Naomy on a Lower East Side art gallery rooftop. This was our first shoot together, she’s stunning and went along with my crazy ideas: inflatable giraffe!

Sometimes you get spontaneous inspiration in the city…I get a kick out of 3D antics with two-dimensional posters. This grocery delivery truck was parked in Willamsburg when I got the self-portrait, the driver looked a bit alarmed when I saw his face in the rearview mirror. A few months later I saw the same kind of truck parked on the UWS Manhattan.MLSP is Marne Lucas Self-Portrait, an ongoing series since 1997.Special Assistance: Timo Ellis
