Oyster Magazine Interview 2014
She needs no introduction, she is Angelyne. She is love, light and truth. People are drawn to her — she radiates an energy that is almost from another world.
She's a Hollywood legend, featured in films like Rock of Ages, Earth Girls Are Easy and the soon-to-be-released Terminator: Genisis. She's been portrayed in Futurama, in the new Aaron Paul cartoon Bojack Horesman and she'll be performing as part of Ariel Pink's Tinseltown Takeover. A muse to many and an embodiment of longevity as a West Hollywood treasure, Angeleyne and I get deep — discussing extensionalism, the power of knowing and higher beings — all while zooming around in her pink Corvette in between crystal shopping.

On Tour With UK Cutie FEMME
British electro-pop artist FEMME (Laura Bettinson) is yet to release an album, but she's found fame online by writing, recording, mixing, directing and producing all her own tracks and videos. She's currently raging her way across North America, supporting Charli XCX and on a girl power-fuelled tour. While FEMME's first track, 'Fever Boy' debuted earlier this year with infectious and swaggeringly beat, her new song 'High' is a blissful stomp that shows off Laura's gift for infectious pop.

The typically glamorous magician’s assistant has become an icon in popular culture, evoking an air of mystery and personal sacrifice. Involving manipulation of the human body, misdirecting the audiences attention and more often than not, being the mechanic behind the illusion, the magician’s assistant is often overlooked next to their principal, holding props and serving themselves as living props themselves. For this shoot, we were inspired by vintage 1920's and 30's photographs of magicians, contortionists and their assistants including the eerily beautiful Bess Houdini, wife and assistant to the iconic illusionist and escapologist.
Re-imagining Paris Couture Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 Editorial
'We live in the real world through our emplacement in space and time, equipped with bodies that can act upon and interact with the other realities that exist about us' (Nicholas Rescher, 'Imagining Irreality: A study of Unreal Possibilities').
In Hans Christian Anderson's saga, 'The Emperor's New Clothes', the protagonist is under the pretence that he is wearing clothes but in fact isn't. He is confronted with the juxtaposition of his appearance versus reality; how things are thought to be, along side how things actually are.
Inspired by the FALL WINTER 2011/12 Paris Haute Couture collection of Jean Paul Gaultier, Stephan Rolland, Valentino, Iris Van Herpen, Alexandre Vauthier, Zahir Murad and Armani Prive, I have referenced the tale and it's philosophy in my images. By digitally altering the androgynous model's hair to create headpieces and giving the illusion of 'naked fabric' on the skin, I have simultaneously dressed and unclad the image.
I have alluded to vulnerability of nakedness, yet the model is empowered by her invisible couture. Real and the unreal striking an ironic stance; seesawing simultaneously.
