A couple of my high school friends, being teen girls from Iowa, loved doing their makeup with
bright vivid colors — and doing it very artistically. I told them to do their makeup like they were
going to a rave and for them to meet me up at the park by the school. That’s how I ended up
with this photo, which conveys the message that Iowa girls are just as colorful and bombastic
as those in any other city in America.
