ast night the Brooklyn Museum hosted a members reception for the opening of Ai Weiwei: According to What which will be open though August 10.

Ran into neighbors and close friends Maruchi Santana and John Parham.  Check out their branding firm Parham Santana.  Super creative people.  Maruchi has an amazing aesthetic and sense of color, John is always ready to share his latests cocktail recipe.

I digress, if you are in traveling distance to the great state of Brooklyn, go see this show!!!

Roberta Smith’s review in the NY Times.

(The images below do the art absolutely no justice.  I am hesitant to include them.)

From a fashion editorial I photographed for the Art Issue of Razor Red Magazine. Artist Scooter Laforge painting model Atong Arjok (Trump). Styling by Cliff Hoppus, makeup by Aeriel Payne. At the model casting I took a snapshot of Atong. A day before the shoot I emailed the photo to Scooter. The morning of the shoot Atong walked into the studio; her face lit up when she saw the painting.

Such a fun day!

Razor Red Magazine – Art Issue

Posted in Art, Beauty, Comings and goings, Diary, Editorial, Fashion, lighting, Photography, Portrait, Work with tags , , , on May 14, 2012 by erichason

A collaboration with artists E.M. Casey and Scooter Laforge to create a fashion story for Razor Red Magazine’s Art Issue. We had an incredible time making these images over the course of 2 days (one day for each artist). It was a fun, interesting challenge merging the artist’s vision with the fashion aspect. I am quite pleased with the outcome and look forward to doing more collaborations. Styled by Cliff Hopus, Makeup Aeriel Payne. Hair Michael Duenas. Art Direction Cooper Vasquez.
