Sewn From The Soul
Sewn From the Soul is an online editorial project brought to light by seven friends who have all collaborated together in order to see a bigger picture; ultimately meshing and intertwining Style and History. History is important as it gives us the ability to trace back what has occurred previously to help us better direct ourselves to the future. Style contributes to one’s overall character and truly dictates our persona in everything that surrounds us. We all contributed our individual style to this editorial and used a primarily monochromatic palette to assist the Black History Month theme.” –Street Etiquette
Less than 24 hours since Sewn From The Soul has been published & the peoples response to our project has left me speechless…words cant describe how I’m feeling right now. This has truly taken a life of its own. Just comes to show the power when creative minds combine to birth such thing. Overwhelming.
What people may or may not know is that we shot this on the afternoon of Jan 3oth. That being roughly 2 weeks ago. We were immensely pressed for time considering everyone’s hectic schedule on top of February being a short month. We wanted to give our audience/readers the full effect of our concept, This was a collaborative project…. once the photos left my lab they went straight to the flash animators’ who had to compose & interlace the audio the photos to what you see in the editorial & then finally into the Street Etiquette team to piece everything together for the blog. It’s all a group effort, if one falls behind; we all do…domino effect. We made sure we all stayed afloat understanding the task at hand. A few Sleepless nights (like i sleep anyways), days filled with lots of caffeine & countless hours consumed by Photoshop & final cut. but reading/seeing peoples reaction after viewing our end product makes it all worth while. It’s one of the things that keeps me going….
What my desktop was roughly resembling for the time til release, processing these images…This project is sewn into my soul.
I’ll be back to deliver some more words regarding behind the lens details.
This is just the beginning..
