  • Meet Mohamed. Or Momo as he's known by. That's the nickname our friends and I call him.

    My friend Mohamed and I reconnected a few years ago after being out of touch for several years. He's stopped talking to a mutual friend of ours, which was the reason for our disconnection.

    After coming home from Koreatown in the wee hours of a weekend morning, we dropped by a friend's house to continue our dance-capades. Armed with a cheap Dollarama wig and some electro beats in the background, we started imitating our favourite supermodels and had a pose-off in between the kitchen and the living room.

    I love taking photos of him. He gets very animated in front of a camera. Like a beast, he's both a photographer's muse and dream. I also love how the overhead light crowns his hair, making subtle references of being a queen.

    Needless to say, this might be the photo that would make the cut to "continue in the running to be America's Next Top Model", a saying ANTM host Tyra Banks would say if she approved a photo.
