Clothing, an Extension of the Skin




These two photographs are the beginning of my series in relation to an alternative take on fashion-esque photography. The focus here being on relationships of varying ideas, for instance the relationship between clothing and skin, the relationship of the environment to the clothing, the relationship of space to all of those. I feel like it's still on the tip of my tongue, the edge of my seat, I have so much work to do and am overwhelmed and excited all at once! I haven't had these sort of inspirational revelations in a long time. 

Composure vs instability defined by a disconnect with that that is surrounding. 

Currently my new job as an under-the-table-paid barista is working out very well. A small fraction of actual work compared to the nice pay, which I won't complain about, plus incentives such as I can hang up my work to sell, tips, and the surprising amount of networking I can do. I've already met two artists with home-studios, one of which is being paid to visit Copenhaegan next week and I am extremely envious of! Anyways, it seems like a nice fit. Tonight might include a visit to Philadelphia for various, obvious, reasons; one being that it is just such a great place! We'll see what comes out of it.

Kelley, my love.

These photos are wonderful, I am so excited to see what you have been working on while you are miles and miles away from me. I could admire your photographs for hours on end.

One day we will be in Paris together where the world will be ours to discover. :)

thanx for turning me on to Alexey Titarenko and bas jan ader - hadn't heard of them. i'd say your work is an homage, or at least a dialogue, with all those whose work you admire. look forward to museums full of your things.
