‘‘When we were preparing to do it, she started to cry. She was like a little girl, she was terrified. This is another side of her that we, the public, doesn’t see. She is like all of us, she is a human being with fears. And once she was tied upside down, she hung 53 minutes upside down. And I said to her ‘Are you okay?’ and she said ‘Yes, I am very okay. I never felt so free.’’’ 

— Robert Wilson about photographing Lady Gaga. This portrait was named The Flying, and was shot in october 2013, and was exhibited at the Louvre in France.
