Actually, the photo isn’t of me alone. The shoot for Details Magazine was of the indie band Jawbox, but my role as a shocked suburban shopper was vital!
Our location was a New Jersey supermarket. Right behind me is NYC nightlife personality Cynthia Powell.
True story: After seeing my photo, a jeans company requested that I come in and audition for an ad campaign that David was shooting. They were looking for a wacky character, but it wasn’t until I arrived that they realized I was a drag queen! Unfortunately, they weren’t interested in gender-bending.
I haven’t seen David in a long time, but he’s been sweet ever since I met him decades ago in the East Village. I snapped this photo of him at a party circa 1987.
According to the Times, David is now concentrating on his career as a gallery artist.
I wish you all the best in your artistic pursuits, David! Thank you for helping kick off my career as a supermodel!
