Something is Brewing
I photographed the room at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia. The two ladies are a vintage photograph from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Open Access program. This image took a ton of layers and even more hours. First time I worked with more than one person in a vintage image and it was very detailed color work. Worth the time and effort because I love these two ladies. They were just so darn interesting.
I wanted to create mood, mystery, and a little magic. I always read articles that your image has to tell a story. Well, sometimes the image, or at least my images, makes the viewer construct the story. Just by answering five questions you have a story: Who? What? When? Where? How?
