This was our first time shooting together and it was a thoroughly fruitful collaboration. This series was part of a larger project featuring many goddesses and other mythological figures. I chose to portray Atropos, the fate who cuts the thread of life. My roommate recently forged a knife at a blacksmithing class, and I thought it would make the perfect tool with which to depict Atropos' deadly duty. I love the photos from this set and the frank emotion they convey.
Here's some images from the first half of this year that I haven't found a place to post yet. Enjoy!

Near Providence, RI. I was so excited to meet and work with Evelyn Sinclair. I respected her both as a model and a photographer before reaching out to her and when she agreed to shoot together, I was thrilled. We met at a nearby park and went for a long walk before coming to some good locations to shoot at. As we walked, we spoke about life, art, modeling, and future plans. She carried herself with strength, wisdom and maturity beyond her years. I was so sad to hear that she had passed away recently. Death is always a tragedy, but especially when it happens so suddenly and to someone so young.
Thinking of her reminded me revisit these pictures and share my favorites (both as a model and as a photographer). I absolutely love the last image. The framing, composition, and emotion of the pose combine to make an image that I think is quite beautiful and moving. I'm glad to have had the chance to meet Evelyn and share some time together. She was an inspiring and talented artist.
This was such a fun and experimental shoot! It was my second time working with Mylar and I love the distorted reflection it creates. When crinkled, there was a water-like effect when the light bounced off of it. I really enjoy when I get a chance to be creative and play around with different materials like this.
Last month, I modeled alongside several talented models (Mary Celeste, Nataliya Natta, Theresa Manchester, and Lucy Magdalene) at Ivy Lee's schoolhouse event which takes place at an old schoolhouse in Pennsylvania. It's an amazing location, dilapidated and full of posing opportunities. I shot with many photographers throughout the day; here are some of the photos I received. Enjoy!
