Women in the Cities is an inspired photo series, honoring Robert Longo's Men in the Cities charcoal and graphite illustrations. Created between 1977 and 1983, his series portrayed the young urban professional, sharply dressed and thrashing in contortion, evoking the juxtaposition of order and chaos. 

"Described as a sort of death dance of the modern man, his series was an early attempt in merging sculpture, drawing, photography, and film." 

Evelyn’s Women in the Cities series is a contemporary homage to the namesake and artistic vision of Longo's work. Combining high speed flash photography with a touch of model acrobatics and a few mattresses (for safe landings), Evi captures the rare essence of her subjects in motion, at 10fps and 1/1000th of a second.
