Black Magic is one of an ongoing series of portraits created to resemble old photographs. In reality, she resides in Paris, quietly spending her days in the Musee d'Orsay, elegant in soft neutral tones. But when I met her I had a different view of her and her story. And so I created this image, revealing a darker side, a deeper story, full of mystery.
