Gerd Ludwig: Grimm's Fairytales

A really interesting take on Grimm's fairytales. Photojournalism meets culturally imbedded stories meets modern idea of appropriation of old classics. Anna Gaskell couldn't have done it better.

Beautiful Video

Here is a video my student shared with me. So beautiful. So interesting. THE LIGHTING!

Yoga Mom

Yoga Mom Sketch from Whitney Warne on Vimeo.

This is a piece I did in collaboration with Allison Pugh, a mother and Yogi from Des Moines, Ia. I am interested in this piece for the interaction between my subjects and myself, the conversation and the imposed gaze that my camera brings to the situation. I asked Alison to perform head stands in her home environment, a feat that takes many years of practice combined with immense physical and mental strength. This piece also speaks to the balance of body as well as the balance of motherhood As my mother always said, and my grandpa before her, "Once you have kids, you always have kids."

Thank you Allison for your hand (stand) in this piece.

Tell Me I'm Pretty

The Necklace is the Piece. The Photograph is a sketch. Looking for a better model and a better way to shoot the images of the "costume jewelry" I'm starting to create. Thinking about going 4x5. Here's a taste in the mean-time.
