Botanical silhouettes




Art direction and design for a story on botanical silhouettes for the March 2011 issue. Beautiful projects created by crafts editors Silke Stoddard and Athena Preston, styling by Tanya Graff, and photography by Roland Bello, who was so wonderful to work with. I really wanted to incorporate the headline into one of the projects, so I cut out the letters of the word "nature," Silke made multiple sunprints of the flowers and the type, and we shot the fabric being rinsed in water. Here is a behind-the-scenes video of our photo shoot (video by Philip Leaman) that was created for our ipad issue, which can be purchased here.
