This is my girlfriend Moa naked in her bedroom… Kind of arty, isn’t it?
Sukhreet with Parrot Baya
I crossed Sukhreet in the streets of New York and found it quite weird that she was walking around with a parrot sitting on her shoulder. First I just kept on walking, but than I realised that I have to go back to talk to her and to take a picture.
Sukhreet herself is an artist who was born in New York and has been living here for most of her life. The parrot, whose name is Baya, is from the Amazonas and is 18 years old. Parrots can achieve an average age of 40 – 60 years, so he is still quite young…
To take this picture I used a digital pinhole camera, that I made by myself, in combination with a flash.
