    Today is Erica Jay‘s birthday so I thought it would be the perfect time to share my photographs of her with you! We worked together a few years ago when I hosted her while she was coming through NC. The images of her that are now in the gallery are from the first time we met. We worked together again later on when we met up in Nashville, all of the photos I took of her then were for Diplopia. This first image of her below (which was taken in my parents back yard) is blown up large in black and white and is now hanging in their “bar room,” which is a prominent room in the middle of their house. My parents are so freaking awesome, that room has a bunch of my photographs of nude models on the walls. <3 My dad says he has breakfast with them most mornings, haha.

    The images of Mikki Marvel were also taken in my parents back yard (it’s really pretty! Can you blame me?) and were taken while being filmed for James McMahen‘s documentary Duality. Mikki is super fun to work with and even though she also is based in Charlotte somehow we’ve only each photographed each other once!

    Kelso Deano visited Charlotte on the way home from a family vacation a couple years ago and I photographed her for both Diplopia and for nude double exposure portraits. After our shoot in my old apartment I took her to one of my favorite local places here called Amelie’s, which is a 24/7 french bakery and coffee shop. It looks like it was decorated by the Mad Hatter in a french theme! It’s super cute and all their pastries and food are DELICIOUS.

    I have been reading a book that I found in Marie Laveau’s house of Voodoo while we were in New Orleans: Circle of Eight by Jane Meredith. It’s about creating rituals and magic based on your relationship with the land. It has me thinking a lot about rituals that I want to begin and magic that I want to create. It definitely inspired this self portrait set I’m sharing today.

    Everything has been so up in the air and unfinished and scattered since we moved. I’m looking forward to the time when we are completely unpacked and settled and can really start getting into a routine again. A priority for me (after making art for y’all of course) is to learn much more about magic and energy and all things metaphysical.

    Antisocialdisposition had a few shots left in his camera so we set up a shoot to finish off the roll involving a circle of eight with some of my skulls and larger quartz crystals. I’ll be sharing his photos as a bonus for everyone (a public post!) in a few days. I took the opportunity to shoot a large self portrait set in the circle after our shoot to share with you. I’ll be incorporating this kind of imagery/props/theme in future sets. More crystals and bones, some of my favorite things! Yay!

    What are your thoughts about incorporating metaphysical imagery? Let me know in the comments!
