Two of a kind

Earlier this fall I got the chance to collaborate with IGNANT for their “two of a kind” series where they send the same 3 objects to two different artists and see how each interprets them. In this case they sent me a paint roller, bubble gum and cotton pads - and of course I drenched them all in pink goop. You can view the full editorial as well as the other artist’s interpretation up on their website (here)

LA diary // part 1

I fell in love with LA this summer and then subsequently spent the following months feeling quite heartbroken. I let the pictures I took there sit for a while, trying to figure out what I should do with them. Well, it’s been 4 months now and I figure it’s time to start putting them out there - these pictures below are actually from my very last day in LA, when I got to spend a little bit of time with my dear friend Tara. I’ve known Tara for years, feels like we grew up together, and she’s one of my favorite people to photograph. We spent some time in her garden which felt surreal, a place I’ve seen in pictures so many times. I also got very quickly obsessed her childhood bathroom, all green, which was a new color for me.

Wolfie as me

I’m finally getting around to posting some of the images I shot this summer! These are some pictures I took of my friend Wolfie in my bedroom for my “me vs others” series before heading out to LA in July. I love blending elements of what’s mine vs what is my model’s, in this case I told wolfie to bring over things that reminded her of me, and she brought a ton of ponies and pastel clothes.

These were published over at haunt magazine today as well, you can view them on their website over here.

Portraits of Andrew

These are some portraits I shot of my friend Andrew when I was living in Brooklyn
in March. I had never met Andrew before and he came over to my place for me to take his picture – I had been shooting a lot of commercial stuff at the time and wanted to go back to my roots and do something quiet and soft. I put some of my blush on his cheeks & played with some dead flowers I had lying around.
At the end of the shoot we went to my rooftop and he started climbing the water tower – I have to say that it was really cold that day, also I’m terrified of heights so props to him for that!!
I love when I get to meet people for the first time & photograph them, it’s like a memory of that first impression. This one was a sweet cold spring afternoon.
