OLIVIER GIRON is a graduate student who is pursuing an MFA in photography from
the george mason university school of art
these three photos are from his series titled mind traveler
my documentary photo teacher pointed me towards this series because of a project
that i am currently working on in her class and i am totally in love!
so impressed and inspired by these three photos

so why would anyone want to roll around in the mud in the rain on a cold day?
well, no one really does
but if you volunteer for a shoot with photographer JEWEL PEACH
then you better be prepared for just about anything
JEWEL'S special project involves a few other models and lots of
ROSIE HARDY inspired photographs
everyone should be very excited to see the outcome of this
LAUREN had to wade nearly all the way into a rushing muddy river
and sat around in puddles and balanced on bridge ledges
and she STILL looks stuning
the lovely photographer and her husband who assisted her all day
his quick reflexes kept JEWEL from sliding right into the river!
and i still have glue on my face
because i forgot the precious antidote
but that's okay, because the mask was worth it.

spent the entire day working on my linocut reduction print
also known as a suicide print
you cut a little, print a color, cut some more, print again, cut some more, etc..
so, there isn't any going back and reprinting. it's much much much too late.
so here are some photos of the process....
|cut a border some minor details, printed grey|
|sharpened my tools|
|caved a whole lot of detail...|
|inked my plate|
|placed it on the press within my grid, and then laid my grey print down|
|sneaking a peak :D|
|hooray! it came out GREAT!|
although i still have several colors to add.
|i reaaallly like some of my classmate's prints|
he has a couple more runs to do still as well.
|LIZ, carving away|
|this is her sketch, i can't wait to see what her prints look like|
|HANNAH'S is gooorgeous|
such a great idea
|her prints are coming out great so far as well.|
mermaid in a tea cup :D
