I've been following Yanick Dery since I was in college (granted that wasn't very long ago); he has always been a huge inspiration to me. His work has so much drama, and on a technical level is perfect. I particularly love this series because it's kind of mysterious (still dramatic), but also because I love the plus size model. I want to see more plus size woman in the industry (which means I need to be shooting them as well)-- this shoot is amazing to me, because you're first thought with this work isn't to notice the plus size model; you're first thought is to think about it as a beautiful fashion photograph. In my opinion that is the true bridge in the body gap with in the industry.... Create the work for beauty, leave the body issues and standards at the door.
I'm taking on a different role for this next BRINK mag shoot. I'm playing stylist. Styling has always been a passion of mine (went to college for it), so this time around I get to take a break from MUA, and work my styling hustle.
