return to portrait work…

I left portrait work many years ago to pursue an adventure in travel and landscape photography.  Recently, events aligned to pull me back into portrait work and I must say, I enjoyed it.  So I have taken another tentative step back into it, with a new project, “purity”.

The “purity project” explores our ideas about the word purity as it relates culturally to women and girls, in contrast to what they are in the literal sense of purity.  So far, I am only sharing it on a separate instagram account, @AthenaCareyLifeprints, but I am sharing all of it, making floral crowns, sourcing and making the dresses, behind-the-scenes videos, studio setup and shooting, editing in Photoshop and the final pieces.

I’d love for you to follow the account to join me on this adventure. 🙂
