Portraits of Nora
happy, happy friday!
Hi-hi to you all! Ça va ?
This past week (midterm week, oof) flew by in the blink of an eye (ooh, that rhymed!). The vast majority of my projects, presentations, and assignments went quite, quite well, if I do say so myself. And now! Onto the second half of the fall semester. There are heaps of photographs to shoot, rolls of film to develop, negatives to print, and digital files to print (gots to love balancing analog and digital… :/ ), still – but it is all so, so fun. Truly. I couldn’t have selected a better major and career path.
Anyways! The images above are from a photo session I shot of Nora, a friend of mine, several weeks ago. I am continuing to develop my female portraits project et voila. A second addition to my series. Thus far I have photographed four very different, very beautiful friends. My body of work is growing fairly rapidly and evolving somewhat… according to my professors, I need to perhaps explore more unexpected, interesting, conceptual portraiture. We’ll see. I believe simplicity in artwork of any medium is pure and honest and these are elements I would like to contribute to the world, because isn’t there enough bullshit out there already? Experimenting can be beneficial, of course. And I am pushing myself each and every day to improve both myself and my art. I just usually prefer that my work evolve naturally – and change it always, always does, whether I am making a conscious effort or not. But enough of my rambling. Bon week-end to everyone!
A few little links I love:
- Has you seen these adorable greeting cards?!
- Have you listened to Lady Gaga’s new album, released today? It is so lovely. Read this.
- All these socks; I can’t even.
- THE CUTENESS.
That’s all for this evening. Sending hearts!
