Inspired By…

…Frederick H. Evans’s portrait of Aubrey Beardsley, 1894

Ever since I came across the portrait of Aubrey Beardsley by Evans, I’ve wanted to mimic it in some way. Hillary was my choice for a model but it wasn’t until we were setting up the shot that I decided to add the fun jewelry.


Fashion details- Ann Taylor Loft white shirt with classic men’s suit jacket. Vintage cufflink, hoop earrings, watch and cameo ring.

…Jerome Leibling’s Teen Portrait, Minnesota 1953.

If you love photography, make sure you get a copy of Leibling’s book ‘The Minnesota Photographs.’ His classic black and white images of people are wonderful.
