I Don't Give A Shit (But Still Have Dreams)
Shelbie @ Elite (NY)
Tattoos and balloons and dreams, could stop here. Not going to the tattoo-shop next door though, brown marker does it better here and allows us to change moods whe need though ours keeps being the same for weeks or months. But for Shelbie it's certainly more interesting to keep the one she has on her wrist in order to hold on tight to her dreams about New York City, where she is now with Elite and recently arrived from Michigan. Bright blue gaze and casual clothing made us, and photographer Jason Paul who shot those above (with make-up artist Heather Lucas) think that a model should be a model when she enters the photographer's studio but should always keep her own style and personality to its rawest and purest form when she is walking in the streets (of New York or wherever else). The important is to keep being yourself anytime and that might be the very best way to embody a totally different character when you cross the eye of the camera. And for whoever is interested in the basics besides the big dreams: Shelbie is 5'11 (180).
