experimental portrait

Experimented with water, lighting, props, and photographing from behind a piece of glass

Glued faux fur fabric to a coat from Goodwill for the illusion of a fur coat inspired by Margot Tenenbaum. Hand-painted tiles and used command strips to attach to my shower

Adapted the photos into a book jacket for a mystery novel 

Model: Julie Xiong
