VANESSA BEECROFT
Known for photographing her large-scale nude group performances, Beecroft was “about to travel to Khartoum, and all I wanted to see was a Marilyn from the Sudan: a Sudanese refugee. So we looked for a south Sudanese model. She may have been under some stress trying to reproduce Marilyn’s expression. That was not easy.”
