Makeup artist, photographer and designer out of LA, Afsoon Zizia recently moved to Portland. Her work first struck us months back after a night of trolling Instagram (be sure to check her account out). As a new creative to our city, E+E wanted to connect and get her thoughts and inspiration on a body of work.
Fallen, which was photographed in LA “was inspired by a blend of 18th century European art, negative space, and getting out of my comfort zone. [She] wanted the photos to convey a sense of beautiful loneliness.” Shot out at the Vasquez Rocks in Southern California – where shows like Star Trek and The Twilight Zone were filmed – Jack Moll modeled for her in the extremely hot California sun.
