Thank you for talking about this.

Tell us about this exhibition you are doing.

Last night, we had an exhibition where i was able to meet bobby kennedy, who presides over the water alliance and they take care of the waterways.

I had an exhibition last night called the girl at jellyfish lake and i'm doing another pop-up gallery on the 16th here in new york city, which is the entire collection.

These are pictures of you underwater question are self-portraits with me naked and 5 million jellyfish.

You had jellyfish all around you?

How do you take a picture of yourself underwater?

It wasn't easy.

Self-portraits are difficult anyway, but when you are adjusting light, wrangling jellyfish and then have to have the face that you are enjoying it all, it's not the easiest thing.

But i'm really proud of the collection.

What is your connection to this organization, the water keeper alliance?

Why is water conservation something you care about right now?

Being an artist and shooting half of what i do underwater is a huge thing.

I would like to still be able to go and do that.

Just visiting these areas around the world, i return there year after year and they're doing such a good job for us.

It's really a cause i want to support.

How did you wind up getting into photography?

You are used to being in front of the camera, how did you wind up getting into this field yourself?

That happened way before modeling.

My camera about me my first camera when i was 14 and i remember spending my first allowance, trying to teach myself.

It kind of happened early on.

That the tool i used to show my art and passion, trying to capture them in their own natural environment.

The self portraiture aspect of it, that something not every photographer is doing.

It's got to be an incredibly challenging thing.

Being surrounded by the jellyfish, what are some other examples of what you have done?

Rex i swam with great white sharks with no cages.

That was not self portraiture i have to say.

Weren't you scared of the jellyfish?

I say considering what i've done before, early.

We are very excited to see the exhibit.

It's on display on may 16. thank you very much.

That's it for today's edition of "street smart."
