Model: Egan / Stylist: Kesha Monet / Wardrobe: Your Style My Style Vintage / Photography & Art direction: Parenthesis Photography
The inspiration behind this shoot came from my love of German expressionist art and films such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. To create that same jagged and graphic feel, I hand-cut set pieces out of paper, on a miniature scale, and composited them into the final photographs. The wardrobe and styling were created by a stylist and vintage clothing boutique in based in New York. Opportunities for fashion photography in New York are almost endless, because there are so many creative people looking for others to collaborate with. I love creating photo shoots for small businesses and designers, as they are usually up for unique concepts. We shot at Court Street in Brooklyn, NY, which regularly hosts events for artists and also has a great little studio.
