mannequin poster series
This series of posters was developed through the inspiration of the fashion students attending Miami International University of Art and Design. They had been given an assignment to make evening gowns entirely out of the Miami Herald newspaper. I photographed the gowns and began incorporating the photography into a design.
Experimentation guided the work and the result. Curious to find where this kind of creation process would take my work, I found more interest in the forms of the mannequins rather then the gowns themselves. I reworked the pictures with ink and paint to bring out the form and recess the gowns.
