Arabelle Raphael Is Back

Happy Valentine’s Day. You probably need some nudes.

I haven’t taken Arabelle Raphael’s photo in years, but I always loved shooting her. The first time we took photos was in a mutual friend’s place and then the next day I ended up driving her to Vegas and we shot some pretty 35mm stuff in the middle of the desert and a bunch of photos from that first 48 hours of knowing her have ended up in my zines and books and stuff. A couple of years later we took some photos at her place when she was living in LA, but then 5 years went by and I would occasionally run into her but we didn’t do another shoot until a couple of months ago. 

I saw on Twitter that she was going to be in NYC and I hit her up. She had me come by her hotel in midtown. She had plans right after and her room was horribly lit, so these weren’t taken under ideal conditions, but we got some nice photos anyway and it’s cool to see the progression of her tattoos as time passes. We also shot some really nice 35mm stuff outside after the shoot but the goddamn roll of film got scratched and I was heartbroken. 

There are some more explicit, high resolution shots on Girls of Driven By Boredom so make sure you check those out if you are spending Valentine’s Day in this year.
