Without Tenderness We Are in Hell
After six months of looking, Philadelphia-based photographer Eva Wǒ found the perfect bath tub. Together with model and performer Lucifer Rising, she created this photo series for you today. See what Eva Wǒ has to say about the photographer’s gaze, selfies for survival, and people who inspire her right now.
What have you learned about love that you didn’t know when you were younger?
Eva Wǒ: Deep love, whether with friends, lovers or family is rare and life saving and must be treated with care.
How did you come up with this shoot?
EW: Lucifer reached out to me on Facebook with this bathtub concept and it took me over six months to stumble upon the perfect tub, which was in a friend’s apartment. To prepare for it I had to figure out how to make the water milky and opaque, and Lucifer collected flowers from the flower shop where she works. My lightbulb broke and I had to awkwardly find the right angles in the tiny bathroom, but the shoot was still really fun! It was our first time collaborating and I think we had good creative intuitive energy together.
