The Discomfort ZoneFine Art Portrait Photography
Creating Fine Art Portrait Photography
The goal was to create a fashion spread of fine art portraits using one simple tie-in piece — a white top. But this project became much more than a marketing piece. It transformed into a vehicle for adventure, self expression and, ultimately, tremendous connection through storytelling.
It Takes Two
Collaboration afforded me precious time with my dear friend Jackie, a.k.a. Jack the Stitcher. By bravely pushing past the comfortable and familiar, broadening our capabilities by daring to dream, we have touched a soft, personal space in each other’s hearts, all by exploring the depths of our imagination.
I’ve used these fantastical colloborative images to craft so much more than a promotional photographic essay behind plastic smiles. This project celebrates the magical kaleidoscope of our shared humanity – all wrapped up in the comfort (and discomfort) of art — in this case, my photography and JackTheStitcher’s subversive cross-stitch (available on Etsy).
