Paula with Flying Hair

Paula at the van/Paris

Paula Barbieri | Bazaar France | Paris | circa 1991

Being 6'6" tall, I find it difficult to move with a model (in order to capture a sense of motion) without my looking down on her. Therefore I asked that a wheelchair be appropriated for this photo shoot. Paula moved briskly as I followed her in the wheelchair which was being pushed by an assistant. This technique has been used in movies (generally low-budget or cinema verité). The wheelchair served as a dolly.
