MONROE-LAND INTERVIEW WITH MODEL TOSH YANEZ
Justin Monroe: Describe yourself in three words?
Tosh Yanez: Enthusiastic, Boyish and Creative
JM: What has been your most memorable photo shoot to date?
TY: My most memorable shoot was a Donna Karen Campaign; which was professionally and personally ful-fulling. It was the shot that changed the direction of my career and life.
JM: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever been asked to do and did?
TY: The craziest thing I’ve done on a shoot, was dressing up as a werewolf and peeing on Little Red Riding Hood; which was for your book! I love the picture of “Grandma” (Ester Goldberg) blowing me away with machine guns.
TY: Its’ still very exciting for me. Whenever I see a billboard or magazine of myself I immediately want to show it to my parents! They love it. My mom has a whole collection of my magazines at home.
JM: What are your beauty secrets to keep up with your appearance?
JM: If you could have a dinner party with any three people dead or alive who would it be and why?
TY: At my fantasy dinner party I’d invite Mozart, Marilyn Monroe and the Dali Lama. I’d like to think I have a bit of each one of them living in me.
JM: What is the one thing you cannot live without?
TY: The one thing I can’t live without, besides my Ipod, would be my parents! I have latino/Italian roots! We are all about Familia!
JM: What kind of legacy would you like to leave behind?
TY: I love the art and work that I have been a part of. I take pride in every image and project I’m a part of. I enjoy creating beautiful images with talented people. I love knowing that I can be a part of something that inspires people or even just help them escape from reality some times.
JM: Favorite quote of all time?
TY: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss
