The Making of
“In part, the idea for the album came out of a conversation she’d been having with the photographer Neil Krug, whom she’d met on a photo shoot in LA’s Laurel Canyon in the spring of 2013. They kept in touch via Viber, sending each other imagery they loved. “He was sending pictures of women in habits, like nuns, and Islamic women in veils. Then he sent me this one particular image of a woman in a veil, and the story of The Bride started to conjure itself in my mind.” Whenever she happened to be in LA, they would meet and drive out to remote places to do test shots for The Bride, Natasha playing with ideas for her character.
Krug, in a phone call a few days later, says their affinity is down to like-minded geekery. “If you get on with someone creatively, you just want to collaborate,” he told me. ‘Natasha is so decisive about what she wants to do. There’s always a clear vision, and you’re chasing that vision, trying to get it down on paper or film or whatever the medium is.’”
