What’s your method to bringing hair into your photography? Do you usually work with live models? Being interested in fashion, I tend to work with models. I noticed that sometimes I’m focusing more on their hair and body, and how these two create different geometrical shapes, rather than the face of the model.
Lately, I’ve been even more interested in working with hair as a medium, creating sculptures, installations and even props for my shoots. One good example is my collaboration with Epretext in Romania, and very soon a collaboration with a Willa Hillfreich, a female artist and jewellery designer in London.
Hair is a playful subject and can be used in so many unusual and new ways. You just need to be comfortable with it. I remember when I did my cheVEUX installation with hair collected from different people, I felt so weird at first about touching it. Now I keep that glass box in my room at home.
