On April 17, 2010 a good friend of mine, Forrest Greene, called me up with an idea. A simple yet potentially powerful idea. Jesus on the cross as a woman.
I jumped online to do a little research to see what others have done with this idea. We where surprised to find that there are not much out there. Back in 2010 there where a few playboy style female Jesus pictures with fake plastic chains and fake breasted women.
Immediately we knew we had to follow through with this idea. Over the next five months we planned and prepped all the details. Yet one detail that was locked in right from the start! Who was going to be the female Jesus? Her name is Raquel Nevado. I’d been working with Raquel for the past year and new immediately she was perfect for it. Raquel was Spanish born with a strict Christian upbringing.
After receiving the final prop, an authentic replica of the Crown of Thorns Jesus wore, which you can buy on Amazon for $30 from Holy Land Imports, we where ready to go.
After the shoot I began casually working on the pictures. They where pretty cool but we wanted to make sure we picked the exact right one before moving on.
In March of 2011 Forrest died. Apart from this life blow now dealt to me, I knew the female Jesus picture would need to be worked on and released.
