The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or that show something I have never seen before. In this thread, I’ll include a link to each personal project with the artist statement so you can see more of the project. Please note: This thread is not affiliated with any company; I’m just featuring projects that I find. Please DO NOT send me your work. I do not take submissions.
Today’s featured artist: M&P Curtet
Is there a city more inspirational than Los Angeles?
A city that never stops evolving. Each street, each corner holds the possibility of a story. We have always worked to make stories with our images to capture moments in our own cinematographic style. Up until now, most of these stories have revolved around the automotive world. We wanted to explore outside of that world. For this new series we wanted to take advantage of the ever-changing ‘set’ that is downtown Los Angeles and project our style to create an energetic sport/lifestyle story. In this series we think of Los Angeles as more than just a backdrop, but as the co-star to our strong female lead.
