Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite films ever. I’m not sure if I like it more for the story or just to swoon over Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe, effortless grace, and the scenes of New York City.

I did this Breakfast at Tiffany’s-inspired shoot exactly two years ago (!) in July, but I felt like it was tired and lacking and needed a facelift. I worked with illustrator Caitlin Shearer to jazz up the pictures a bit. She printed some of the photos in black and white and hand-painted the images with watercolor. The concept was to make the images look like very old technicolor films, where each still was hand-inked throughout the film, just like in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This was my first time collaborating with an illustrator on my photographs and I’m so happy with the result.

I love the idea of creating mixed media art. It puts a new spin on 2D art (especially photographs), don’t you think? Some of my favorite mixed media artists are Shae DeTar and Ben Giles. I have a feeling this is the beginning of new collaborations with artists!
