Instead of giving into my urges to stay inside bundled up on the couch watching movies (it was a cold, damp day yesterday) I drove over to Green Hills to check out the much anticipated West Elm Nashville + Etsy: We Love Handmade Art event, which was curated and co-hosted by my friend Elise Yetton of Pennyweight. Elise has impeccable taste and it certainly showed through the work of the hand selected Tennessee Etsy sellers. I took a few photos of the items that caught my eye but check out all their shops for a little Sunday splurge.

I had the honor of being asked to shoot the Belcourt Theatre’s nD Festival fashion show that took place last night. Jamie and the Jones, Bodkin and Steven Alan unveiled their fall collections, each of which was introduced by a beautiful short film ( Kristin Barlowe for Jamie and the Jones, David McClister for Bodkin, James Clauer for Steven Alan) setting the tone right before the catwalk. Nikki Lane, Gabriel Kelley and Holly Williams also provided lovely acoustic mini-sets in between the shows.
While the national spotlight is becoming more and more focused on Nashville, the quality of work being showcased here will blow any expectations or preconceived notions out of the water when it comes to what this town has to offer. From the items donated for the silent auction to the local artists who were asked to participate I was more than impressed with the results.

This body of work concentrates on intimate relationships, highlighting on the psychological dialect between two people. I was interested in capturing their unspoken thoughts through subtle body gestures or glances that make the outsider looking in ponder, tempting them to want to know more about their intimacy. I’m interested in these couples’ intimate states of mind, which bare their emotions in flux.
