Luminous Horrors

We spoke in colors. The warmer gradients sharp and forward while the cool blues and purple hues leaned effortlessly against the wall. They converged wildly over skin.This photo shoot was truly a collaboration among friends.  Driving from NYC’s Chinatown through Time Square, the four of us found ourselves twirling around a hot-tub in an hourly...

Fancy Feast!

A set of 9 photos and 3 GIFs based on the idea of a kitsch queen having a totally colorful, lavish feast. We were inspired by all things tacky, campy, and gross, and think that the images would fit perfectly with Polyester’s aesthetic that we both adore. Iris took the photos, I collaged ’em and...

White Nights

White Nights is inspired entirely by the song of the same name by the band Priest – my interpretation of this song is that its about an overwhelming feeling of disconnect, not fitting in and trying to convince yourself that your fine but in reality your struggling with these inner demons. In the end there’s this hope...

Future Feelings

These images were commissioned for a magazine that then turned them down because “models were ugly, and not agency models” and “the pictures look cheap and “raritas” that, means “weirdos”. But the pictures weren’t meant to be about agency shots, they are about friendship: About how future relationships evolve, no genders, no “formal” things, no jealousy...

I’m In A Serious Relationship With My Food

I’m in a Serious Relationship with My Food is a series that highlights the basic necessity and the infinite complexities relating to the human being’s profound connection to food.  With an unsettling air, these photos capture excess, insanity, privilege and options.  I wanted to make the scenes overwhelming, intimate and perverted, forcing the viewer into...

Royal Family

American Wet Dream

I started this series off taking photos of my friends. I love that intimacy you can have with someone. No walls are put up no fronts just themselves. As a photographer I open myself up and bare-all to people I am shooting, as a result, I capture their natural vulnerable response. I try to connect...

I Eat Dogs

This collage series by Sophie Keith invokes visions of movement and the visceral to explore female sexuality, as physically layered as it is metaphorically. Art: Sophie Keith

Grandmother

I undertook a photographic project with my grandmother (who I live with)  and together we explored ideas of the performed self whilst drawing comparison between us as grandmother and granddaughter. Doing this project was a way to empower and give confidence to each other both as women and within our relationship. Images: Florence Hutchings
