In our third week of “Girls, Girls, Girls,” photographer Eva Michon is spending time at the beach with Laura Merians, a cinematographer living in Venice, California. Originally from New York, she has been working as a Director of Photography for the past eight years, including projects with Björk, Sigur Rós, and Thom Yorke. For the past two years, she’s been driving one of the coolest car models of all time: a cream-colored 1973 Volkswagen “Thing.” Naturally, she captured our attention right away.
