Somewhere In Time

Project Overview

Richard Matheson’s science fiction novel Bid Time Return, was made into the film, Somewhere In Time, starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. Set in a hotel with immense ‘history’, there is a haunting score and soundtrack.

It was destiny that brought me to the Essex House near Central Park.  As I stood by the main entrance, I kept thinking is this real – I was seeing and feeling as if I was in a different era and it was absolutely spectacular!  With lots of luck, I pitched my vision to the rep. for the Hotel’s PR firm, Mark Ricci, who instantly knew of the film and was intrigued.  His enthusiasm led the Essex House to fully accommodate my team, providing us an all-access pass to photograph our story for Tusk NYC.

Gracileia plays the Christopher Reeve character where he finds Seymour’s portrait and is convinced he must travel back in time to meet her. For our story, we have Gracileia travel back in time with her TUSK bag.

这些美丽的图片中,能抓住人眼球的,很多;能抓住人心的,很少。所以,我想跟大家介绍一位摄影师,Monique Lai,因为她的作品,非常强烈地抓住了我的心。

“Monique’s images are truly stunning. She has a wonderful eye for light and finding the perfect composition for the shot. Monique and her entire team did a beautiful job capturing the organic lines and attention to detail.”
