JIÀHN ART FO­TOGRAFIE

Style Magazine - - Art - KISS-ED BY CRE­ATIV­ITY...

The Style team had a chat with pho­to­graphic artist, Jiàhn Char­lotte. This is what she had to say:

ABOUT HER­SELF AND HER ART:

I can’t play an in­stru­ment, hold a note, or draw to save my life, but I’ve al­ways had a love of im­agery, which turned into a real in­ter­est about seven years ago when I bought my first DSLR.

My jour­ney be­gan while tak­ing photos of lo­cal mu­si­cians, and my work has since been featured in pub­li­ca­tions across the USA, Canada, Nor­way, Ger­many, and the UK.

I am drawn to to any­thing out­side the norm, with mood be­ing the most im­por­tant el­e­ment to me.

ABOUT THIS HIGHFIELDS PHO­TO­SHOOT:

It was an ex­cuse for some cre­ative play.

The make-up was loosely in­spired by the band KISS, re­plac­ing the harsh­ness of the black and white make-up with metal­lic gold.

We worked with two di­verse looks — one, a del­i­cate boho feel, and the other with a harsh cy­ber-punk edge.

ABOUT HER UP­COM­ING EX­HI­BI­TION:

It’s a scary thing, putting your­self out there.

Be­ing in­vited to show­case my work with the in­ter­na­tional RAW Artists group and nom­i­nated for a RAW pho­tog­ra­pher of the year in 2014, broke the ice.

My ex­hi­bi­tion will show­case my sev­enyear jour­ney in pho­tog­ra­phy across var­i­ous gen­res I have ex­plored.
