Doug and Phoebe


In the recently released movie “The day the Earth stood still” there is a line uttered by the alien, played by Keanu Reeves, in the reference to humanity: “there is another side to you , I can see that now”. This provoking statement like a deja vu occurred to me when I noticed Doug and Phoebe. Initially I have spotted Dough with his impressive piercings and gauged ear. I was ready to approach him and ask for a “character” pose. However, before I gathered the courage he was joined by Phoebe and they have exchanged a number of moving hugs in obviously sensual moments. “There is another side to you , I can see that now”. When I approached them I knew exactly what I wanted the photograph to convey. They have agreed to the idea very quickly and second later this photograph was created.

Thanks Phoebe and Doug, you’ve been most accommodating models.
