"Tap that ass" - Photo by Cyril Helnwein
I can’t believe I never posted this. This was easily one of my most memorable and hilarious shoots.
I think this might have been San Fransisco? I know I was traveling. Cyril shot me a message on MM that was pretty straightforward and we booked a shoot fairly quickly and easily (my favourite). I glanced over his portfolio and everything was on the up and up so I had no concerns. I show up one evening for the shoot outside this warehouse and called or something to let him know I was there. Go inside and meet his friend (yes, the guy with the black flag tattoo). Settle in and Im like “so what are we shooting?” because honestly I dont think we’d really discussed it. He pulls out a beer tap an explains he’s working on a project and I think he’s nuts but alright, I’ll get on all fours on this table and try to hold a beer tap between my legs (doesnt work by the way). Said friend with the arm tattoo had to go down the street to a bar and smuggle out a mug of beer, which was its own amusing ordeal. And thus this picture was born.
I always like this story because I can start it off with “well there was this one time at a warehouse late at night with these two dudes from the internet and a beer tap…”and it always sounds super legit. And I wonder why my mother is concerned for me…
Anyway…I dont know if my followers span as far as Austria…but if you happen to be anywhere near Vienna and wish to see this picture or other equally fun pictures of other naked women, pop on over to Yoshis contemporary art gallery and have a peek. And buy Cyrils book, cuz my naked butts in it and I said so.
