Amanda Lepore Inspiration
I heard somewhere that when David La Chappelle came across Amanda Lepore it was like seeing the image that he had dreamt about his entire life come to life before him. (Please excuse me if I have misquoted the words). A few years after starting Little Girls, I also felt a similar feeling. I came to realize that the image of the first 'Little Girl" In Red Light District was my version of Amanda Lepore. I have been inspired by her courage to be herself, her courage to explore boundaries and to not be limited by definitions or stereotypes.
