I am very happy to debut this new image that I shot for eyewear brand la Eyeworks FW16 collection . I have been very proud to be able to shoot for this iconic brand for 5 seasons now. The brand is so fantastic and they truly celebrate individuality with their designs and the clientele that wears them. This season's image was so fantastic to shoot. First I am beyond elated that we shot a curve model as the face of the campaign. One of the joys that come with my job is curating these situations that make women look and feel that they are powerful and beautiful. I celebrate women in all shapes and sizes and I love that we got to showcase one of the most incredible figures in the plus size fashion world, India Haylee Barton. The LAE Uncenosred Vision images are always a welcomed challenge for me because with these photographs I have to create fully developed conceptualized beauty shots that really tell a story about me as an artist and my vision. Last season was such a treat because I collaborated with one of my favorite painters from Dublin Derrick Smith . This season I was greatly inspired by neon signs, the light sculpture of work of artist Dan Flavin and a minimalist aesthetic. We painted the backdrop with light, bright hot pink neon light against very simple sky blue horizontal mini blinds. In the end the color combination reminded me of the wrappers of the candy sweet tarts. I plan on working with India more, I love that she has a passion for artistic editorial modeling. Her portfolio of work is quite impressive and she is definitely an incredible role model in the body positive attitude / movement that has been been gaining lots of momentum in the past few years in the fashion world, which is about time! The shoot itself was really effortless, the team was incredible Jaime did a steller job bringing out out India's natural beauty and Anna really sculpted a timeless hairstyle that really opened the face up to showcase the eyewear front and center. Everything about this image is one big YES!!
