Color and Mood

Color Moods in Space

Color Moods

This image is the result of a recent collaboration between Soigné DeLuxe and myself. I wanted to create apice for the “Mindblowing Color Competition by Pantone in conjunction with Behance Network. I painted his face in different colors and patterns and then let him act out his moods. Soigne could see himself in the mirror so he was able to see and feel the color simultaneously. Then I combined the faces to a collage that evokes a trip through space and in between the everchanging moods of color.

Manhattanhenge

July 12th, 2010

Yesterday (and today) is Manhattanhenge or Manhattan Solstice. When the sun sets, it is alligned with the cross street grid of manhattan and creates a magical moment. It can be observed on 4 days a year. We were a small group of people in the know who gathered on the Tudor City overpass on 42nd Street, which was one of the prime locations to shoot this as we didn’t have run in and out of the middle of the street as many people did. Everybody ooohed and aaahed when the sun slid into the canyon from the left and all jaws dropped.

June 15th, 2010

This is the outcome of my shoot with Gender activist milDRED Love. She was great to work with and it was almost spooky to see how she transformed her gender by merely putting a hat on or a jacket and tie. She is truly androgynous, a strong yet sexy woman one moment and a handsome man the next. Her sheer presence makes you wonder about the so called male and female attributes society assigns to men and women.
