1983 ... Cindy Crawford

... I think this was from our second shoot together. At the time we shot it I was not very happy with the results. I kept futzing with the lights and the curtains. The lingerie we were shooting for a Chicago department store was conservative and boring.

I came across the proof sheets recently and realized there might be something there I gad missed. I scanned the negatives and zoomed in; cropping a lot tighter than would have been possible with an old style darkroom and enlarger.

There it was! An elusive moment with of a very young, not yet famous, Cindy Crawford that had waited thirty years to be found.
