Paradise Lost // Paulina in the Imperial Sand Dunes of California

After living in Los Angeles for 5 years I decided it was time to move back to NY. I wanted to do a farewell shoot based off one of my favorite reads. I began to re-read Milton's Paradise Lost as a way to say goodbye to the climate. I took a series of polaroids and digital images inspired by his words. This is Paulina as Eve, having eaten of the apple and gained Knowledge to become Awakened.
