“Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers - and never succeeding” - Gian Carlo Menotti .
This was such an amazing photoshoot 🥀 ✨ It was about 12 hours of hard work, that involved set construction, wigs, and about a million wardrobe looks! The wardrobe/accessories are all made from live flowers, and die after the photoshoot is done. .
It was a big group of friends, working hard to make art together for the love of it. We feel so privileged and grateful to be able to do art for a living, but it’s important to just play and have fun sometimes too ✨ .
We built this massive set (only half is pictured in the BTS shots), by hand in our garage during the heat of a Texas Summer 🔥 It was blood, sweat, and tears, but so worth it 💕
