Julie and the giraffes

Julie Foster | Vogue | 1977

Exotica at Busch Gardens in Tampa. We got up early for this shot. The way it worked was some of the Busch people drove a feed truck in an enormous loop. The animals followed the truck. Julie just stood waiting for the animals to follow the truck, as I stayed focused on Julie. The animals were in position behind Julie for about fifteen seconds (they kept following the truck which had passed by us, and out of the picture).

The pose was somewhat determined by Julie's eyes being quite sensitive to the bright sun. So I had her try this pose to both shield her eyes, and to create an "interesting" shape.
