Lorna Dallas: Enduring beauty and grace

In the heart of Manhattan, amidst the energy of the city that never sleeps, lies the cherished haven of Lorna Dallas. Renowned for her illustrious career in show business, Lorna graciously opened the doors to her New York apartment for my At Home series—a collection that celebrates the lives of notable individuals within the comfort of their own abode.

Lorna's residence is a testament to a life well-lived, adorned with traces of her journey in the spotlight and poignant memories shared with her late husband, Gary Brown. What sets her home apart is not just its warm embrace but the ever-changing panorama outside her window. Central Park unfolds, surrounded by iconic structures that house the stories of luminaries such as Barbra Streisand, Jerry Seinfeld, Madonna, and Antonio Banderas.

As I framed Lorna against this breathtaking backdrop, her distinctive profile became a captivating silhouette against the New York skyline. Time has graced her with enduring beauty, and her voice resonates with the same timeless quality that defines her iconic performances. The city and her music intertwine to keep her eternally youthful—an aspect we can all appreciate.

With a background in portraiture and street photography, my approach is to capture the essence of a person, to uncover the narrative beneath the public façade. The At Home series provides a unique opportunity to delve into the private spaces of those I admire, like Lorna, offering an authentic glimpse into what makes them tick.

Unlike the whirlwind of wedding photography, these sessions grant me the luxury of time to forge a connection with my subjects, experimenting with diverse locations and ideas. Trust is paramount, and I am profoundly grateful for the openness extended to me by individuals who allow me to document their lives in this intimate manner.

In the heart of Manhattan, where each moment is a fusion of history and modernity, Lorna Dallas' home became a canvas, capturing not just a moment but a lifetime—an enduring testament to a passion for genuine connections and the art of storytelling through the lens.
