The Inspired

In each installment of this series, we ask a photographer we love to produce a visual story in collaboration with an artist who inspires us. The artist gets to play the role of the subject behind the lens, and the collaboration manifests in response to something (a story, quote, paragraph, visual) in our body of work that moves our subject to create, elaborate, design, engage.

“Maybe the only way through grief is acceptance. Not by forgetting or waiting for time to heal all wounds, but rather the complete opposite: staying in the feeling for as long as you need to.”

"I wanted to build a piece that would interact with the environment, and that I could also interact with. The fabric became an extension of the wind, the light, and the inner-workings of myself."
