18 Feb Woodstock New York Portrait | Christina Varga
Ok lets take down the internet.. What happens when you mix a pregnant artist, a photographer and a textile artist in the same room. Wham! You get some mighty awesome maternity images. Christina for those of you who don’t know, is an artist, a gallery owner, a tireless advocate for all thats right in the world, and a fierce fighter against all thats wrong. And now a mother to be. I was not going to photograph anyone who I had photographed before for this series but I broke my rule with Robert Warren and Christina. They are both so interesting to me. I had wanted to photograph her pregnant as I knew the possibilities were grand and was a little disappointed when I found out she was already being documented. But when I asked her anyway, she was game. Lucia and I basically set the table for her and she brought the feast. Different dresses, fabrics, and even a whip! Which led to the name MommaNatrix, courtesy of Desiree O’Clair. These images are beautiful, powerful and show such a wonderful side of Christina. Thanks for agreeing Christina it was a blast working with you.
