I was raised on a love of Old Hollywood films – the type of cinema best enjoyed in a drive-in theater with a hand to hold. The style in these classic films (like “East of Eden”, “Bringing Up Baby”, etc.) had a profound impact on the way I developed in a fashion-stunted environment. Even through a black-and-white lens, watching these actors move with such graceful panache became a spiritual experience for me. I found salvation in their iconicism.
