Over the last 12 years this Montreal-based maven has carved out a niche for herself as the go-to photographer for sex workers. Her clients swear she has the superpower to make anything sexy and all on a shoestring. Who needs expensive equipment when you have the God-given gift of making that ass pop?
HUSTLER: Why sex workers?
DANNYGIRL: Cut to me seven years old. You remember those tube neck scarves? I tried putting it on as a skirt because I’d flipped to the back of the old-school yellow pages and saw all the escort ads. I was obsessed! So it’s something that I’ve always been connected to without even knowing what it was. Also, I saw Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour at 12, right at the peak of puberty, and I look back and realize I based my entire career off that.
You work solo?
Yes, I’m a perfectionist. I don’t trust anyone else to not sleep and obsess about something until it’s right.
I’m told you’re a proud minimalist. How do you get so much out of so little?
