When I first started my Dia de Los Muertos portrait series, I had a very clear idea of how it would look – subjects looking straight ahead, skully faces unsmiling and serious. Luckily, my vision was challenged – and improved – by the amazing photos that my clients have been sending.
Brides. Animals. Pink hair. Huge smiles. Nudes. All these have forced me out of my comfortable little formulaic approach to the project and the result, I must say, is gorgeous and encouraging.
