Melissa continues to be inspired by the art of honest portrait photography. Influenced by the tintypes of the early 1900's, she photographs her models up close allowing the details of the facial features to be shown. She is taking a different approach to her portrait-making process by slowing down and allowing the model to be calm, connected and aware of the camera.
The large, unstretched canvas print is an even further study of the raw detail.
Melissa's take on artwork in the home is making a large statement piece or a smaller, more intimate piece. She uses these preferences for her final print size options in this Artist Series.
All work in this series comes signed by the artist, numbered with the series amount and provided a certificate of authenticity.
