Axe and Wags come back from a ayahuasca trip in Canada to a photoshoot for the Vanity Fair cover which takes place in Lightbox NY, a photo studio in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx. The industrial building was built in about 1910 and is now also home to an office of the NYC Department of Social Services. The top floor is the photo studio and has not only the arched windows on three sides but also a glass roof that lets in natural light. Axe thinks he’s going to dominate the shoot and interview, with Wendy to get him in the right psychological place, until Michael Prince walks in.
