This photo I shot this summer with Rachel helping. It was one of those serendipitous moments where my feelings about Rachel, and her staying at my house played directly into the photos I was making. In another version of this image she modeled for me with her hand reaching for the bread slice under the table- which was analogous to her real behavior, the sneaking around and lying. Her hand taking bread from under the table was hardly a metaphor- she was indeed taking my resources, and probably hoping I wouldn't notice she was unable to give anything in return.
In the end the version showing her hand was too creepy, and I opted for this one instead as a final select.
