at the table

I have this crazy obsession with mirror images lately. I'm always experimenting with it and the possibilities of it are seemingly endless (at least to me, lol!). I created this for Puella, but never sent it, as I was unhappy with how I looked in it...ah, vanity. But, I love the color and the 'alice in wonderland' feel of it and I think my odd expression is fitting to the composition.

Cavania Cards

Cavania cards is a card company in the UK that sells out of several stores there, including Harrods. Last fall they contacted me to do a line of 'elle moss' greeting cards. The cards will debut late this year or early next. The images are still being gone through and I am still creating them. I thought I would share a peek of what I am doing. These are by no means the final selection, but just an idea:


Last December I was hired by the wonderful Italian accessories company, Puella (www.puella.it). They have a very young, romantic, literary feel with a vintage sense...not much unlike Anthropologie. They asked me to do a collaboration for their spring/summer 08 catalog and sent me a box full of goodies and basically let me go to town. The owner, Barbara, wanted me to focus on self portraits, which absolutely thrilled me!
The catalog is being prepared now and should be up by the end of this month or early March! They will also be showing my images at an exhibition at the Savona atelier and Torino showroom in Italy.
You can see all of the images on my flickr account (www.flickr.com/photos/torchlightlms), but here is a sampling:
