PHOTOGRAPHER. PASTICHE ARTIST. SELF-PORTRAIT PUNDIT
Louise Parker has a knack for making art both in front of and behind the camera. She first framed her talent in her high school photography class, where she was praised for her innovative eye. It was while studying at Bard College in New York that she readjusted her focus to modeling after being scouted at the age of 19.
Developing from photographer into model – Louise had a vantage point on the industry. Turning the camera on herself, she compiled a series of self portraits capturing moments as a model; between being backstage, at fittings, and on many trains, planes, and automobiles. The final puzzle piece to Louise’s art form was collaging. Literally piecing herself into her artwork by manipulating her self portraits, her collages crowned her as the winner of the Foam Talent Award in 2016.
“I love photography because it can be both a very honest and deceptive medium. It allows you to tell a story but also to manipulate it.” Using honesty as her best policy, she released her photo diary “Work Pictures” in 2017.
Inspired. Inspiring. Visionary.
