This image was shot late July with my good friend model Lacheln, from a concept that was pretty much hers. She created this strange yellow paper headdress and also a blue one which was shot after this. The color schemes reminded me of all the other elemental breakdowns in pop culture- specifically my kids’ toys, Ninjago, Hero Factory, My Little Pony, etc. Thinking about the elements led me to process this as a more ashy, charred person. The blue headdress will be processed more aquatic, and hopefully we will get on to an “air” and “earth” set of images.
