As I've written so many times in the past, the fun of this industry is about the friendships that come out of everyone's love for the craft. But, another aspect of imaging makes it exciting: the quality of work and the common denominators in the company connections we share.
Lizzy Gadd needs to be on your radar. I met her thanks to Platypod. With each new image she shares, I'm repeatedly in awe of her work. She's taken self-portraiture to an entirely new level. Each image represents another piece of her heart and vision.
Our home is filled with photography with prints from artists all over the world. However, it's not very often I consider a portrait of somebody else so stunning that I want it on a wall in my home.
Well, Lizzy Gadd's work is about to be available through her online gallery launch this week. The excitement kicks off with a 48-hour 50% off launch celebration starting on May 6.
In her email to me she wrote: I'll also be donating 10% of everything towards Canadian forest conservation initiatives, to help give back what nature gives me, since my art wouldn't be possible without it.
I know it sounds pretty sappy, but looking at the body of work Lizzy's put together, simply makes me proud to consider her a friend!
Whether you're in the market to purchase a limited edition print or not, I hope you'll take the time to view the catalog. It's a pretty remarkable body of work. Click on any image in this post to link to Lizzy's pdf catalog.
