Here Comes the Twister

Sophie Clarke, CBS’ Survivor South Pacific winner (Fall, 2011.) Coney Island, NY, March, 2012.

A photo, a portrait, can sometimes be a puzzle. Asked to do a feature on Sophie Clarke, last fall’s Survivor South Pacific winner, it was up to me to find a concept. How do you meld Survivor, reference the South Pacific where it took place, and pay homage to her new home town, New York City?

Why in Coney Island, of course… where the beach, palm trees, a reference to a crazy storm/wild ride, and New York City can all be wrapped up in one.

The whirlwind of Survivor behind her, Sophie now tackles medical school in New York City.
