Greetings! As most of you know, I am in the process of photographing participants for my 2nd installment of the Naturally You project. For those who are wondering, this 2nd installment is based around the theme "Normal" is not "Normal" (or "Normal" ≠ "Normal"). I have come to the point in the project where I will be posting teasers with images of the participants thus far (one participant each week). Like the 1st installment, this project will culminate in an exhibit next year - more info coming soon. More info on Naturally You - "Normal" ≠ "Normal" can be found in this very blog. If you know of anyone who would like to participate, please direct them to that blog entry: http://www.usphotog.com/usphotog-blog/2016/6/19/naturally-you-normal-is-not-normal-sign-up-1
So...without further ado, meet Chiirp and Ricki Sparx:
I met Chiiirp for the first time in 2014 when I was putting together the initial "Naturally You" project. Even then I could tell that she was one who relished her individuality. Chiiirp was the very first person I contacted for this project - that is JUST how much of an impact she had on me. She is visual artist, a performance artist, a makeup artist, and SO much more.
The day of this session was my first time meeting Ricki, but I could immediately tell that he was passionate about his craft as a guitarist (as well as his relationship with Chiiirp). He lives a life based solely on love.
