"Domingo Sucks His Thumb in My Christopher Street Apartment,N.Y."©Eugene Pinkowski from "New York SeriesI 1992-1995 ©Eugene Pinkowski     Between assingments,I would ask interesting looking strangers if I could photograph them.They could pose any way they desired.  lways use my 89 Christopher Street apartment as the set. it had pale tangerine walls,grey carpet,charcoal and grey sofa bed ,as decorated by the owner. Domingo was 6'4",had blue-black hair,wore the finest designer clothes. It was the December of the blizzard.First,I did a fashion shoot against the six foot snow banks.I had platinum blonde hair at that time,and I wanted to see how Domingo would look as A Snow Angel,so I sprayed his hair white,painted his nails white.Almos t every person I photographed asked to pose nude,including Domingo.they all wanted to reveal themselve for my camera.Domingo started sucking his thumb,so we put his briefs back on him,as they looked like a type of diaper,and balanced the shot.
