Photography: Charlie Rubin
Styling: Siri Thorson
Model: Lydia Carron (NEXT)

Long story short: a few weeks ago, my friend Charlie and I were asked to put together a photo shoot for an online magazine that, ahem, shall remain nameless. After an enthusiastic initial review, they proceeded to sit on our images for several weeks, only to drop us last minute due to unclear and, frankly, lame reasons. We were both looking forward to having our work "published", albeit in a looser sense of the term, but finally we decided: screw it. This blog is as good a place as any to publish them, and I think you guys will appreciate them more anyways, gall darn it.

I think I can speak for both Charlie and I when I say how proud we are of the way the story turned out. Lydia was an exceptionally adventurous and patient model, crashing around my corner of Brooklyn and braving allergy-inducing dandelions all for the sake of her art. A big thanks is also due to Hannah for letting me raid her hat stash. I'm really, truly happy with the work we all put in, and I hope you feel the same way!

If you're feelin' it like we're feelin' it, both Charlie and I would love to encourage you to reblog and spread 'em around--we only ask that you provide credit and link back to our sites and/or this post.

How rude of this online publication--you did such a great job! I'm pretty much in love with the photography (that out of focus close-up is genial) and your styling... I'd like to ask you where that first blouse is from, but it's vintage, right?

bigBANG studio said...

GORGEOUS, you guys! And bad karma is sure to follow that mag around in its future ventures. Their loss!

Wow, incredible work. Is that the equipment blouse in the 4th shot?

I really love the atmosphere you've created, what a shame they didn't use them, that's really inconsiderate, but it's their loss!
