The Artist & The Space ~ Kristi

This week I had the pleasure to enter the world of floral design. I visited award winning Munster Rose studio in Minneapolis and met Kristi, the owner and creative director. They are specialized in wedding floral design but today Kristi was working with a young student (she also teaches workshops in floral composition). Being a teacher myself, it was really fun for me to watch them interact.  Her student was definitely a natural and a fast learner. This visit and the smell of flowers made me long for Spring even more as we are entering another snowy weekend here in Minnesota.

I hope you enjoy this week’s artist! Please leave a message in the comment section below.

ABOUT THE PROJECT: For consistency, I shoot this project at 35mm (my fastest prime lens) with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 in Jpeg Acros film simulation and in horizontal format. I also always use ambient light and do minimal post processing, if any. The point of the exercise is to spend time playing with my camera, not with Lightroom. I strongly believe in the power of limitations and in making the photograph in camera.

As the title indicates, this series is about artists and their space, not so much about the art itself. As you know, I love photographing people, but I also love those little details that say so much about who a person is. Nothing is staged or posed, I simply record the artist at work.

Thank you for visiting! You can see the full project on my website: Part I and Part II
