As photographers, lovers of light, appreciators of detail, and constant observers of the world we wander through, I think many of us fall into a category of people who gravitate toward other artistic professionals. While I’ve no doubt come across artists (photographers and otherwise) who see creativity in others as a threat, I’d say on the whole, creative people enjoy and are inspired by other creative people.
Every eye is another vantage, every vantage another opportunity to see from a different angle and from a variety of those angles, the more easily it is to be inspired and grow our individual craft as well as our appreciation for the craft of others.
Allison is one such creative whose skill is equalled only by her amazingly light and vivacious personality. Her joie de vivre is evident as is her penchant for the rock and roll shadings playing to a slightly darker luminosity along that spectrum. No one says you can’t have both, and Allison embodies and ties those two points together beautifully in her work. You can tell when someone loves what they do, and you don’t need to go much further in conversation with her than hello to understand that about her. Come on in for more shots of Allison’s cryptic and beautiful, wearable artwork.
