THE NARRATIVE SERIES by Abigail Collins
It was a pleasure to host a photoshoot for a true artist, the photographer Abigail Collins. Reading through her blog, it seems that each one of her photo sessions conveys a meaning, a purpose, a lesson. Some posts are profoundly inspiring whereas others are very sincere and touching at the given moment. This time was not an exception when Abigail decided to host a free portrait session in our stage ART 2 while implementing an original and very creative approach to it. Dive into “The Narrative Series”.
“Abigail Collins is a wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer. She views each shoot as a completely unique, collaborative adventure. Every client contributes their own essence in her creation of images that not only document the time they share together, but tell a visual story of who they are. She captures the in-between moments in an artistic, inspirational style. In love with the nature of California, she is based in Los Angeles and always looking forward to her next creative destination.[About the shoot] I reached out on social media and posted that I was hosting free portrait sessions all day on February 28th as part of a personal project called The Narrative Series. The catch was the sessions were free in exchange for the person’s story.Social media reaches millions people, but can be isolating at times. I wanted to get rid of that distance and get to know people, and listen to what they had to say. It was an opportunity for them to talk about anything they wanted, and come away with an intimate and artistic portrait of the experience. No topic was off limits, but it had to be something important to them and shaped their life in some way. Each session was recorded, so when I posted the images I included excerpts of our conversations. Sharing those images and conversations with the public made the human connection come full circle. What I found to be most beautiful was that despite everyone being so different from each other, they all had common themes and similar thoughts, dreams or aspirations. We all want to make a difference, to matter, and leave a positive mark on this planet. “
As it was aforementioned, Abigail has the astounding, entertaining and informative WEBSITE and the BLOG section there is my personal favorite. Make sure to follow her on INSTAGRAM as well for daily updates of her keen portfolio.
With its unique look and harmoniously blent props, Art 2 is on a high demand. features a full rustic wood floor, that creates a platform on its South side. There is a wood staircase leading up to the platforms left side. The flooring is real wood throughout, and stained to a nice dark tone.
