Here’s a look at what inspired me for this photo series. I plan all of my photo shoots out in (super-official-top-secret) scrapbook pages consisting of archive images, magazine cuttings, family photos, fabric cuttings, and drawings.
I often plan out every photo by sketching it first, in order to accurately transfer my ideas from my mind to the camera.
