Hi all! I have started a new series of work called “aura portraits.” I don’t know if auras exist but I like the idea of them for showing a person’s vibe/qualities in a photograph. I also am heavily influenced by 1970’s pop culture, and this is a little part of some of the mystical stuff that people were exploring back then, so I thought it would be fun to explore too. Here is one of the first photos to come out of this project, Courtenay Brandt is the model, who also happens to be my stylist. Makeup by Stephen Bowman, hair by Katie Neutz. Many more to come!
