Emily is an artist who’s art-form is her hair, makeup and clothing.
She says: “Self expression is my motivation, I like for people to see what’s on the inside, on the outside.”
I first met Emily at a friend’s art opening at Front Street Art Studios and Galleries in Dayton, Ohio. She had multicolored hair that was cut into shapes, and was wearing a white faux fur coat with bananas printed all over it. I knew right away that I wanted to photograph her, so I did what I always do; introduced myself and gave her my card. I told her to check out my website and if she liked my work to give me a call, which she did. We met for coffee and talked about taking her picture. The first photo session turned into many sessions and eventually led to making this film.
