It’s January, we’ve entered a new year, and it’s time to face our new year’s resolutions. For some it’s hitting the gym, eating healthier, getting out of debt, traveling, the list goes on. But one that I’ve enjoyed observing is the “try something new” resolution, and in the world of art, trying new techniques or mediums to expand one’s creative palette seems to be quite invigorating. Therefore as a budding photographer looking to expand my curiosity, I delved into the niche of projection art photography.
Projection art photography has been around since the 1960’s starting with black and white projections, and with the ever-growing technological advancements combined with abundant internet content, creativity seems limitless. You can explore and virtually jet-set, from a sunny beach to a frozen forest, with just a few clicks from your computer. Add in another layer such as fashion and models to create an artistic marriage between projections, bodies, and clothing.
Fashion Stylist/ Creative director/ and owner of Lore boutique, Kushinda Little had this to say about the featured shoot: “With this concept we are able to create different environments. We just happened to use the concept of the seasons during fall/winter. When you’re thinking from a fashion perspective you think of what would you wear during these times? Where are you going? What may you be doing during the fall/winter? When you get the answers to the questions you’re able to create the look that fits with those answers. Fashion is just like the seasons because it’s always changing and evolving. My job is to create the looks that elevate your style by asking those questions, then to give my clients that look they want.”
