Project Management: Portraiture Vision Beyond Celebrity
Art world “it” girl Vanessa Beecroft is a provocateur at heart, whose conflicting dealings with feminist issues while secretly flirting with fashion’s most notable physical and physic disorders has always been a potent formula. I coordinated with Deitch Projects and Vanessa Beecroft personally to set up a very signature portrait. I oversaw the photo assignment through photo agency, budget, equipment, scheduling, editing, post-production and print. Here she poses with her son in her home upstate NY, in a tender and playful moment. The familiarity and originality of the portrait is what makes it so successful, as a daring view into the artist’s personal environment, which is matched by the photographer’s fresh snapshot style.
