A complicated recipe of teamwork, technical skill, passion, and emotional impact. Coming from two years of experience, being a model is more than just looking pretty for the camera. Aesthetic is a small part of the greater picture, usurped by the understanding of concept. In our appreciation of figurative photography, we tend to only remember the subject of the image. Each work of art you see in this magazine is a collaboration. Every photographer, makeup artist, clothing designer, hair stylist, and model deserves equal credit for their work. In each role lies inherent worth, deserving of recognition and critical consideration. At FUSE, we make an effort in each issue to credit artists for their dedication to beautiful images. Just as art imitates life, it’s creation eflects our need to work together. At the heart of all successful collaborations is passion, and a positive drive to achieve something greater than ourselves.
With love to her craft,
