Long before Zuri Tibby was a Victoria’s Secret Pink Model, the then seventeen year old teen model & I shot some fashion portraits on NYC’s gritty, urban streets. We specifically shot in an abandoned lot in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, aside from some black and white pictures I shot in the hallway of my building. These photographs from our rather short test shoot stand in stark contrast to Zuri’s image as a Victoria’s Secret Pink model. But that’s why I like them; she’s real and raw, but still beautiful.
