While in London, I re-made a Robert Longo piece (pictured on bottom). My model, Adam, was such a good sport. At one point I asked him to “dance like a dad at a wedding” (far left photo). He, of course, did which was wildly funny.
Longo’s original intent was to illustrate people as they climbed the corporate ladder. Their awkward poses reflect the powerlessness of one attempting to gain power. Also, keep in mind the original is a charcoal drawing, not a photograph (like my version is)!
