And here are some disposable film shots!
And a couple of Polaroids
Hey everyone! Hope everyones 2013 has been well! I’ve been severely sick for the past two weeks and it’s really made it hard to do much of anything <(T◇Tll)> I couldn’t even play video games! I missed ALA (an anime expo) which was a huge bummer (((*>д<*))) to tell you the truth it’s been really hard to see the bright side when your new beginning is still shrouded in darkness…(´；Д；｀) But I’m trying to not let my health or other things get me down! ヽ(*｀3´)ﾉ
Anyways! On to my post… About a month ago I took a very hectic and long trip to the middle of no where for a shoot! We went to this place called “Salvation Mountain” . I’ve seen the place many times before in various editorials and such (it’s a really hard place to shoot at btw). The story about it is a man was very inspired to make this mountain (it’s man made by one man) as a place of salvation, (hence the love Jesus and bible scriptures) he stayed there (it’s literally the middle of no where) for like the past 40 years I think just matenincing the mountain. Until this year he got too old to do so, so now a couple helps take care of the mountain. Behind the mountain there is a huge group of trailers of people just living out here. I assume because if salvation mountain… (there is like nothing out here) it was a really amazing experience. I’m not spiritual, but just the fact that this man dedicated most of his life to his artwork and what he believed in, is really beautiful and inspiring!
The photographer, Valerie Chiang, has a very cinematic approach to photography ( she is now going to USC for film school ) . I think it’s very appropriate for this location and series. We didn’t have hair and makeup so it was a very natural shoot, but of course the wardrobe had to be amazing! So I pulled some pieces from my favorite vintage store ever (adored vintage) even though all the dresses are from a different decade it still ties all in together I think. I’m just in love with the feeling in these photos… What do you guys think?
Hope everyone has been well!
