About the Image

This fashion image was shot in 1985 about 2 weeks after I moved to Italy. This great location is in the Palace Hotel in Como, Italy. Patricia, the red head model in the middle, was one of my favorite models then, she was just wonderful as a model and as someone to be around. I do not remember the names of the 2 male models. I do recall that the one on the right was a French photographer friend of Gary's.

My styling crew: Gary was the hairstylist and Francis was the makeup artist, both of these gentlemen were from NYC.

The time of year we shot (mid October) is not high season for the hotel, so renovations were underway in the lobby of the hotel, otherwise I'm not sure I would have gotten permission to shoot. I do remember it was cold.
