Final print for the Paris Trip Exhibition that will be up at MIAD in August. These images (except the last one) is inspired by Constantine Brancussi's, Sleeping Muse. I wanted to modernize it and make it my own. I can not wait for all my summer classes to be over so I can start doing my own thing and develop all my film. I will post the final images for the muse inspiration project as soon as I choose one image from all the shoots. My model and friend, Alec Schuppel, is an amazing photographer who is always willing to help me out with shoots.

Ello...still hard at work trying to get this Paris project complete! In between two jobs and three summer classes scheduling shoots are pretty hard. Lucky for me my gorgeous model Maddie always comes through for me. These images are inspired by the amazing painting by Paul DeLaroche, Le Juene Martyr (The Young Martyr). One of my favorites! I dont know for some reason my to favorite paintings involve woman drowning.....i dont know if that's weird. But I like them just the same.

inspiration for paris trip exhibition

My long time beautiful friend, Zoe has finally been one of my models. I have been inspired by one of Felix Nadar's photographs I was lucky to view in person while studying in Paris. It wastaken of a woman named, Madame Rowland and was called a hair study. I believe it to be a breathtaking and mesmerizing avant garde photograph of it's time.
