New York City born and raised photographer and model, Jude Liana, works on both sides of the lens. A self-proclaimed hustler, her art is provactive, often sexy, and full of raw style. Exclusively for Allday, Eva Michon met up with Jude at her place in Los Angeles to get to know her and her pup. 

Who are your style icons?

Young Pamela Anderson no doubt. Obviously, I love a lot of the fashion trends of the 90's that are especially still relevant today. But I also live for the classic looks too; think young Eartha Kitt or like Elvira Hancock from Scarface.

What inspires you?

Strangers. Friends. Some movies, some songs. Other artists. New York City. Foreign countries. Colors. My wild imagination.

"Should talents even be hidden is the question."

Do you have a hidden talent?

Don't think I have any but should talents even be hidden is the question.

Where is your favorite place to take pictures?

New York City never gets boring to photograph. And any new environment I'm in.

What is your biggest fear?

The ocean. It's funny though because I also love the ocean, I love swimming in it and I love being close to it. It's just a total mind-fuck. 

What are you listening to?

Lots of oldies like The Shangri-Las and Four Tops. Lately, I've been bouncing between old classics like that to Black Sabbath and other favorite rock bands of mine.

Something so beautiful is also so mysterious and can kill us in an instant if it wanted to. I think this fear probably stems from watching "JAWS" at way too young of an age, and maybe "Day After Tomorrow" has something to do with it too. Who knows.

What are 5 things you can't live without?

Loved ones (including my dog), Law and Order SVU, my camera, cocobutter, and a New York City slice of pizza OR bagel.

What was the last article of clothing you bought?

This spin off Baywatch t-shirt from Goodwill. It has Pamela Anderson in her iconic one piece bathing suit and it says "BAEWATCH". I'm obsessed with it.
