These photos are the end result of a collaboration between Mette Mikkelsen stylist og Anne Højlund Nicolajsen photographer and I. Both of the girls are currently residing in New York which is also the place of the shoot. They contacted me and asked me if I was interested in doing some of my collage artwork on their finished photos to give them a totally different feel. I received a moodboard so I could see which feeling they were aiming for.
My keywords were old english roses in dusch colors. After being briefed over mail I started looking at roses and collecting the pictures of those which I felt were suitable for the series. As you can see in some of the pictures the girls wanted to use a double effect on the model. the reason for this was that It would be a bit to much to have roses on each picture.
I really enjoyed the luxury of receiving beautiful pictures as the base for my work, usually on my collages the attention is on the artwork, but with this project I had to make sure that the artwork wasn’t to overwhelming and would steel the attention from the pictures.
