From Lauren Russell’s story for CNN:
The best way to get a subject comfortable during a photo shoot, Manjari Sharma found, is to get the person into the shower.
Sharma started her shower series about four years ago with her subject Anastasia.
At the time she was photographing people in her bathroom. She didn’t know Anastasia well, and it was a bit awkward.
She had Anastasia get in the shower, and as the water fell on her, Anastasia relaxed and opened up, both in her demeanor and in her conversation.
Standing in that private place, where typically only a lover or child would join a person, Sharma has heard about the emotional journeys of a number of people.
