no.2 | Kudos to Sara

Kudos to ... is my chance to thank all the people who almost sacrificed their soul to help me finishing my college projects, in the last 6 years.
Today I'd like to tell you about the 327 pictures I took to get this "ad" right in 2001:

I asked Sara if she had the time to come over and I would take a few pictures of her, for a project of mine. I told her that it would take about half an hour but obviously I didn't take my photography skills into account.
The brief asked for a quick shot on tobacco advertising for Christmas. Great! So the next weekend, I grabed my Mum's Advent wreath (because of Christmas) and combined it with Sara, because sex sells. Unfortunately I'm a bad photographer and in general, there is a reason why I prefer type to pictures. And this meant that Sara had to go through almost a pack of lit cigarettes before I managed to take a picture that wasn't either blurred or showing a laughing Sara, because she had to clench quite a bit to stay in that pose.
Today I'd say that the picture is too cheesy to be true, but I still think that Sara looks damn good in that photo.

Ay ay ay Sarita, que bonita! Sarah always had to be the smoker in martina's campaigns.. I also remember the movie we made for pseudo H&M when Sarah was the sexy, smoking, diva actrice and I just offered my car to be in the background.. :(
