Oyster #99: Tasha Tilberg Shot By Cass Bird

"I met Tasha years ago and was slayed by her beauty."

Cass Bird's photography portfolio in our All Woman issue is a marker of inspiring women of all sorts. Here are her shots of the Canadian model Tasha Tilberg (at the time very pregnant) in the backyard and in the kitchen. And here's what Cass had to say on her subjects for Oyster #99:

"I wanted to shoot women who I find inspiring, and who represent a broad range of women. Some are acquaintances and some I met on the shoot. I had worked with Bambi and Aurel previously, Mickalene is someone I have always respected and known distantly, Tasha is a friend of mine — I met Tasha years ago and was slayed by her beauty ... Considering this is the women's issue I felt she embodies this issue in her present state — and Sally Singer is an angel who has blessed my life for the last few years with support and friendship. Most memorable moment? Shalom and I running through the halls of the Bowery Hotel like rowdy teenagers."
