Trea is a dead on Josephine Baker look-alike. Josephine Baker was a 1920's Parisian dancer, famous for barely-there dresses and no-holds-barred dance routines. The moment I met her I knew that she was my opportunity to create a perfect homage. I didn't want to do an exact replica- so I based this likeness on existing Baker portrait, but that image is a crude one, rather than one that was iconic or particularly memorable. Of all of the vintage looking photographs that I've created, this one is probably my favorite.
