Ever notice the abundance of images glamorizing drug use? We decided to show something much closer to reality. Ergo there is nothing pretty about this set, instead there is desperation, shame, self loathing, and pain.
I have lost people to heroin, I take offense to those who would try to make it attractive.

Very soon we will be shooting new sets. Probably a little different than what you are used to from me.

Oh poor baby. Is she drunk or some thing? U know there is some thing special about this shot. The glamour is missing and the beauty is gone.... Is that how our lives are ??

Nope, I'm always sober.
This is infact how a lot of people end up though, both in the model world and in the rest of the world...

Nothing glamorous about this. A very hard hitting message here. Well done!

Thank you! I think that one of my fav things about modeling is when I can do something with a real edge to it..

wonder how the Ad Council would respond to an anti-drug campaign like this; should be very effective :)


naw, they'd probably get their undies in a knot around their collective necks, 'It might offend somebody.' :roll:

glad you did this, far to often the glamorization of things like drugs/violence really does send the wrong message. thankyou

You are welcome. I'd do coke too but I would rather not put fake blood up my nose, and the blood shot eyes would be hard to fake too.
