Portal: a doorway, entrance, opening, or gateway. I've always been fascinated with them ... the inherent invitation, the mystery and enticement of what lies on the other side. I wanted to photograph musician Celia Verbeck within this context, and then allow subtle concepts of the "in-between" to be explored as well. Music serves as the vehicle for such spaces, transports us to a magical landscape of internal wonder and reflection. Fond of using simple concepts to push creative results, I created a simple paper set featuring cut circles, and shot through fabric, cellophane, and glass to generate an ethereal, ghostly effect. What follows are some of my favorites from our shoot. You can hear Celia's music HERE.
