Chanel Surfing

I was shooting a story on Jennifer Nicholson, Jack’s daughter, at her house in LA. As I was wandering around the garden I stumbled upon the pool. The Chanel Surfboard was lazily floating in the middle of it. There was a movie like quality to the scene, reminiscent of Sunset Boulevard. Something about the fallen autumn leaves and the unkept garden washed by the cold autumn light. It was shot with a Pentax 6×7 and the film was cross-processed at the lab.
