I wanted to take an opportunity to share the work of a photographer who has inspired me, starting with Brooke Shaden. In her own words:

This series is called “Sac” and it won me my first award back in 2010. Dealing with the theme of entrapment while using what limited resources I had, I created largely in nature in dark, damp spaces to create a swampy, monster-esque feel to the characters.

I took her work as inspiration, but went a slightly different way with it. It was a shoot that I’ve always wanted to repeat as working with the wet fabric had quite a steep learning curve. The shooting time was limited due to the fact that the wet, clinging fabric made the model freezing cold, even in an indoor studio!
