“The Seated III” By Wangechi Mutu 
When I arrived, Nefatari & Celebrity Make up artist, LANIER LONG were seated in a car with LANIER adding final touches to Nefatari’s makeup getting ready for the first shot. 

During our previous conversations preparing for the shoot, Nefatari informed me that she had recently walked in the Sonja By Sonja Morgan Fashion show during New York Fashion Week.  To open the show Nefatari wore a gray fur hoodie jacket that she felt I would like to shoot her in. She also let me know that other pieces could be made available.  So we pulled a few pieces from Sonja’s collection and here are the results…
