I am really excited about this new project that I am doing in collaboration with my friend and amazing photographer Jose L G Cano. When I first met him and found out he was a photographer I gave him the hat tree from the costume I had designed for WOW a few years ago in case he wanted to use it for his photos.
Last month he told me he was ready to do a photo session with a model wearing the hat and asked me if I had any ideas. I created a paper forest which I photographed in different ways… he photographed Laura and later gave me 300 photographs to play with!
This is just the first photograph of the series, I can’t wait to see how the story develops.
A big part of this project is Danny Sugar who is the master photoshop alchemist, fan, tree and horse head holder, leaf spreader…
Also Kung G Cano, who applied invisible make up on Laura and made sure her hair was looking impecable during the photo shoot.Read More
These two little pieces introduce and end the rest of the dioramas of the “night and day” series. Small wooden swallows depart and end undulating between the work.
I hope it is self explanatory, it is titled “embracing childhood”.
