Looking at photographs of people as research is something I really enjoy. Sometimes when working with Supporting Artists we can pay homage to these faces from the past and in a small way bring them back to life. If we have time to recatch them on camera all the better!
When in Mexico this summer I was struck by the way so many women still wore traditional clothing to go about their day to day life. It's not hard to see why - lightweight, cool and loose fitting it makes it a practical (and beautiful!) choice.
