Had about six seconds to pull this off as two NYPD guys were chasing us out of the traffic. Got a stern talking to and then another in the subway.

We kept getting large crowds around us and i guess the cops just wanted us gone. We were taking her to a gallery and could not chance a cab with all that paint so the subway was it.

This is a really interesting and unusual shot! My first reaction is how did you pull this off? Was it staged or did you and the model just walk onto the crossing and start shooting? If so how many times did you need to do it to get the right shot?

I love the fact that everything is so colourful here. Not only the model but the entire background, it's almost like she's wearing some sort of camouflage!

This happens to me all the time. You're just lining up a nice landscape shot, and some tourist comes and stands in the way. Bad luck!! The more I look at this - and believe me, I've looked a lot - the more iconic it gets. 7
