Gypsy guitar legend Django Reinhardt was considered by many to be the father of Modern Jazz Guitar, and was a romantic figure in the history of the form. His work influenced me very much, and his story has fascinated me for years.
I like shooting themes, and this one was pretty natural for me. When I thought about who I wanted to be my gypsy girl, lolling provocatively in the caravan 18 year old Madeleine Horn was my first choice. She has the look and is bold as brass, and she got right into the spirit. All styling was hers alone.
