*ominous jazz plays in the background*
It's August 2017, and school starts in less than a week. Derek has come down to Long Island in order to make a smooth trip up to Purchase for the fall semester. Over the summer, we bonded over Twin Peaks, which was the first show that I was able to binge-watch within a week. I absolutely fell in love with it, as well as David Lynch's style and compelling characters. It was only appropriate that Derek and I do a shoot inspired by the show. We took turns taking pictures of each other in the woods near my hometown. It was around 5 or 6 o'clock, and the lighting had an ethereal glow to it that matched the aesthetic we were going for.
For the shoot, I decided to channel Audrey Horne, while also taking inspiration from Donna Hayward and Laura Palmer.
Derek was not channeling any particular character; he dressed as if he was just a citizen in Twin Peaks heading to the Double R Diner for Norma Jennings' famous cherry pie, and some "damn good coffee" (which, of course, we enjoyed back at my house after the shoot).
"I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange"
