“Disaster modeling can be dangerous. I have to stand in between downed trees and telephone poles, on car bumpers, in trash piles and sometimes people yell at me to get off their property. It’s scary work!”
Why let a good disaster go to waste? NY City resident Nana Gouvea took full advantage of Hurricane Sandy’s wreckage by sexily posing amidst downed trees, destroyed cars, and wrecked buildings.
Now I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking how could she do this when people have died in this hurricane; people have lost everything they own in this world. People are without power, water, and are forced to dumpster dive for food. They need help desperately. Shouldn’t she be passing out blankets or something? Don’t be ridiculous.
Nothing signals it’s time for a photo shoot more than a disaster.
A quick look through history and we find that this isn’t Nana’s first disaster. She’s a seasoned professional disaster model.
