Imaginary Girl Series

Imaginary Girl is a series of creative and colourful portraits featuring female subjects in imaginative settings.

Each of the seventeen women in the series is either someone I know personally as a friend or I have come into contact with through social networking sites. One of the challenges in working with people who aren’t models is the high level of discomfort with having their photo taken. Almost all of the women I chose to work with didn’t feel they were very photogenic but were willing to step in front of my camera lens.

All of the photos were taken between September 2009 and February 2011.
