“I felt empowered here because this was my first fashion shoot with such a highly respected team. The shoot was inspired by me, and to get this shot required mastery over my body and pain as the needles were inserted through my flesh to hold the dress sleeve on. I have always been attracted to the beauty in pain.” (Referencing a photograph by Nick Knight)
