I am particularly interested in creating environments. In my work I use various mediums from photography to sculpture to build spaces that reflect an individual personality or a sense of place and emotion. In this portrait series, which is part of a larger body of work, I build a space around the interests and personality of the subject. Each space is unique to the sitter, and reflects both my reactions to them, as well as their own vision of themselves. The images are a collaboration between the subject and myself, with shoots spanning sometimes more than six hours, as we explore our interaction.
ABOUT MY STUDIO
My studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn is where I build most of my sets and it's filled with vintage furniture, carousel horses, lamps tables and props galore. Take a look and see what catches your fancy. The studio also rents by the day. For more info visit: http://www.forgottenworksstudio.com
