This image is from a shoot for “Slither,” a student theatre performance a few weeks ago. Greta Wilson ’07 was painted gold and draped with live snakes as part of her performance. The set and costumes for this production were gorgeous, and it was awesome to document it.

Random anecdotes: the boa used in the show came from a local museum. During the two weeks it was gone, there was sign on the cage saying, “If you want to see the snake, go to this show!” accompanying a copy of the show poster. Also, I purposely came early to the shoot, only to wander into the wrong show. I spent 45 minutes trying to figure out how live snakes were going to fit into a show about a perverted teacher (“Oleanna”).
