Twenty-five-year-old "Raquelle Diva" walks into an empty room at Studio 20 in Bucharest, Romania, her plastic heels clicking against the linoleum as she powers the computer screen.
She wears a backless red dress and scrunches her hair, hustling from corner to corner.
Three of the walls — save the bare walls the camera will never see — are covered with some hyperbolic statement wallpaper or cheap silk curtains.
Flipping on the fluorescent lights and grabbing balloons — props for her one-woman digital peep show — she eases into the faux pillowtop armchair to face the webcam. As technology becomes better and cheaper and as free sexual content explodes online, live sex shows have replaced the dying pornography business.
The adult webcam industry currently tops $1 billion in revenue a year and collectively, cam sites are visited by an estimated 5% of global web users daily — with top sites hosting 30 million visitors a month.
She is one of more than 14 models Maccotta has shot — all in an attempt to understand how technology interacts with and modifies human beings.
Raquelle Diva, who earned $48,000 in three months last year, is the most successful cam model at Studio 20.
After our interview, she and her friends will probably hit the pool at a local apartment complex and do what millennials do: eat pizza and play out their lives in front of tiny, portable cameras.
