Another www.justingagephotostudio.com backstage video
We braught the Terrific trio Back
Buf Morgane our muse and model
Alana our hair and Makeup artist
And Justin our photographer.
The setting of this image is very much out of the mad max universe but as you will see in the video, all the styling was created from recycled materials such as bustier from repurposed leather and a halo from junk plastic
More than just taking pretty pictures we want to tell a story to leave people thinking about things. The theme this time was Modern day Slavery of the Artist communities. Our world LIVES in the shadow of the product of creative people. From the music, to the images down to the very packaging of the gum an artist or several is behind that. Yet their work is often not payed, their creations are pirated and knocked of by the industries and mass produced and marketed. All for that Glorious line "it will give you great exposure"
People let's call it what it is Abusing these creative people is Slavery. Artists have been led to believe they must give themselves for free in the hopes of one day getting paid for their work... but let's be realistic here... No one is EVER going to pay for what they think they can get for free. ANd so the cycle continues. It's up to the artists to say NO! We have value, our time, our talent, our training, our gear, our ideas have Value.
