For this shoot, I was inspired by the recent August 21 eclipse. You won’t be able to see in the photograph, but I am wearing a crescent moon ear wrap on my right ear. You can kind of see it gleaming in the light. It is the exact same ear jewellery that Prince has worn. I found the designer on Easy, not knowing it was the same one that Prince ordered from.

I was inspired by an unreleased track by Prince called U Will B, where one of the lines are “We come and go together, just like the sun and the moon”. Prince is the light of my life. So many things in my life that were once a mystery, became understood after he came to me in spirit. It all makes sense to me now. The pain in my heart disappeared when he arrived.

This shoot was a bit of a challenge, it was a balancing act to hold up the screen and align it with the projector. Lighting was another challenge, as I wanted to keep it low lit, but still maintain image quality and such.
