Masquerade Exhibition at NOPA ~ February 1st - March 30th, 2014

I've always been drawn to masks; particularly the emotional and psychological aspects they can evoke.  What is hidden and what is revealed.  I love the idea that they're dual in nature, since the mask stands between one's self and the world, looking both in and out.

In my Unassigned series, which I began in 2012, I wanted to explore what the world might be like if we could shamelessly borrow the best traits from the opposite gender. By replacing the face - an obvious gender identifying trait with a mask of its opposite, I'm questioning perception and prejudice.

I'm so pleased to announce that one of my images from this series was chosen by Aline Smithson for the Masquerade exhibit hosted by the New Orleans Photo Alliance!!  The show is in conjunction with the 2014 Carnival season and will run from February 1st - March 30th, 2014.

Sincere thanks to Aline and to the New Orleans Photo Alliance, it is a great honor to be in the show!

Bonne année!

"Roots and wings. But let the wings grow roots and the roots fly."
Happy 2014 my fine feathered friends!
I hope this year is a continuum of transformation and even during times of chaos beauty emerges through art...which in turn saves my heart.
Oodles of love, laughter and art for your hearts sake to all!

Thank you to the always incredible Aline Smithson for sharing our favorite photographs of 2013 on Lenscratch, which is so fantastic to be apart of.  
Many hugs, Brandy
