I have this huge obsession with Japanese culture and its Geisha history… This is my second Geisha inspired shoot now but I have so many more ideas for this theme. There is an actress in the film Memoirs of a Geisha who plays the cruel and malicious Hatsumomo (The one who eventually burns down the Geisha house) Her hair is often styled up in the traditional Geisha way but quite messy with bits falling out. I absolutely live for those scenes of that film and I wanted to bring that look into this shoot as much as I could. I wanted it to look very urban and westernized if that’s the right word If you have seen the film you will know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t then go buy it! Right now! go on!
