"Silk Flower" (or Fleur de Soie in French) is Bianca's Instagram handle. She -a student in the Fashion Institute of Technology- agreed to pose for me near Washington Square Park...against black doors of a NYU building. It was an impromptu studio background, and with the ambient light of a late afternoon resulted in the above portraits.
I used a combination of Iridient Developer to process the RAW images, and then processed the resulting JPEGs using my go-to image editor ON1 with a LUT portrait preset, and then applying a smoothing layer.
I used the Fuji GFX50S/45mm to photograph Bianca. More of her portraits can be viewed here.

"Remember the sun touches the East before it can reach the West...."
In sociology, the East–West dichotomy is the perceived difference between the Eastern and the Western worlds. Cultural and religious rather than geographical in division, the boundaries of East and West are not fixed, but vary according to individuals...as Meg Tsai shows us so well.
