"Shot these back in February for little miss Tokoy Diiva. I had been meaning to shoot the first picture for over year. I dreamt this shoot concept up last March while staring out into space and wondering about how people derive their interests/personalities from what's shown in the media, especially the TV. I thought it was kind of pathetic how, obviously i'm generalizing here, masses of men and women have resorted to using logos and brand names to enhance their image and boost their status in society.
