I made this portrait of Vaneza when I was still living in Brazil. She arrived and said, I really want to shave my head. So before we started shooting, we went to the closest hairstylist, and she buzzed it all off. The whole portrait session just had this incredible vitality. Vaneza was there to shine, no artifice needed. And she owned it.
P.S. This beauty has gone so far. She is now the star of Netfilx's series, 3%. It's so inspiring to see this strong women living her dream.
