Diary: Self Portrait With Maya
If I had to choose a defining self-portrait from the Penthouse years (1995 – 2005) it would be this picture that I came upon recently in my archives. During a a test shoot with “Maya” the former Entertainer of the Year winner at Delilah’s Den, the legendary gentlemen’s club on Delaware Avenue in Philadelphia, I decided to make a self portrait with the exotic dancer during a break from one of my earliest shoots for Penthouse Magazine in 1996. I often scouted and photographed in various clubs along Delaware Avenue. This picture was staged at the former Egypt nightclub located at the corner of Delaware Avenue and Spring Garden Street.
