The artist becomes the subject.

This picture was initially inspired by the ‘artist and model’ series by Miles Aldrige, in which he photographs his wife Kristen McMenamy in an artist’s studio, in a collaboration with the artist Chantal Joffe. My friend Jess is a talented sculptor and we thought it would be interesting to turn her into the subject, posed with her medium. I used some gels for added color effect. The next step will be to do this on location in Jess’ studio, to complete the overall concept.
