As much as I love working with clients in my studio, I also enjoy projects that are geared more towards professional development, free style creativity and skill building experience. And if I can help someone build an interesting modeling portfolio as a result, I am satisfied beyond words. Today, I wanted to share with you a glimpse of rather an unusual boudoir session that I had a pleasure of shooting last month at Architectural Artifacts in Chicago.
As an artist, I continue to look for new and unique forms of expression. I like to combine styles, genres and visions that may seem disconnected in order to build new visual forms. The Architectural Artifacts is a truly magical place that allowed me to experiment with a very intimate genre of photography in a very non-intimate setting. An antique store full of old and intriguing objects and vintage mannequins is probably an unusual location for an alluring boudoir session but I really wanted to do something different this time and the results were astonishing. There is nothing more rewarding for an artist than to play with human form and reach new levels of creativity.
