Creative Women in 360 Degrees
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
Anthony Zeh's on a mission to find and photograph creative women -- in 365 degrees.
The Phoenix-based photographer is all about process; he visits each studio or work environment and makes 18 to 30 High Dynamic Range photographs, which he stitches together to give the viewer a surreal look at the tasks each artist performs in her space while creating.
"We don't often get a look into the process of their work, " Zeh writes. "We miss the hard work and the trial and error. We miss the personality behind the work and where the work develops from. We can learn a great deal from the places people develop their craft and art."
The result, he writes, will be a series of 8-foot wide, surreal and panoramic photographs of female artists, designers, dancers, and musicians in their creative spaces. Ultimately, Zeh hopes to showcase these photographs in galleries and art spaces around the country, as well as on his website, to showcase creative women on a national platform.
He's currently raising money for the project on Kickstarter and looking for potential participants through his website, where you can see finished examples of Phoenix-based graphic designer Rhonda Zayas and local fashion designer Angela Johnson.
