Self exploration with photography is a powerful tool. Sometimes it can help to have an experienced model hang out with you while you learn about yourself, so I invited Miss Angel Inez to help out…and what a glorious pairing they turned out to be!
So, I covered Lily VonTrapp in metallic body paint and covered her head with snakes. You know, as a good friend does.
I put together this headpiece with rubber snakes and a headband. I feel I owe the nice man with the French bulldog an apology, as he stumbled upon me spray painting the snakes red on paper towels…it looked like something out of a horror movie!
After we completed Medusa, my husband suggested we add more color to the silver, so out came the mica. For those unfamiliar, mica is a biodegradable glitter used in bath bombs. So glitter…but extra, extra fine. And it got everywhere! It didn’t help that I absolutely had to get a shot of her blowing a fistful of it straight at me…
Just a self portrait. I didn’t break my head!
How’s everyone doing? This has definitely been a strange time. I wanted to capture some social distancing art with Angel and Lily, as we’d ordinarily be bursting out the door into Seattle spring to do this in person. So…here’s a photoshoot done over Zoom!
My response to Tumblr’s decision to cave…..
Thanks to Landon Chance, Lily VonTrapp, and Ginger Steal for getting weird with me!
