Mink Fur Bikini, a self portrait 2017
The bikini was constructed from my Paternal grandmother Aftab's Mink stoles, capes, and coat. This bikini was worn while plunging into a freezing lake in January- both the bold sultry nature of costume and the exhilarating act of wildness are qualities that I witnessed and honor in my late Grandmother's life and person.
