Last summer I became acquainted with the talented Talia Migliaccio via Instagram. Talia was at the time based in Denver, making really cool psychedelic art and broached the idea of doing a collaboration with me. It took many busy months to bring the project to fruition, largely due to my own slow moving, but finally last October I was able to hand-deliver some pieces of jewelry to Talia at her new home in Olympia. She lives in a stunning space built into a forest hillside overlooking the Puget Sound which includes several charmingly crooked houses, beautiful old iron gates, two chicken coops and a greenhouse. I would have liked to stay for a long time, but this look book of photos shot there prove a more than adequate souvenir. I absolutely love the warm, natural mood of the images as well as the slight surreality brought out in the kaleidoscopic multiple exposures. I am calling this series, "Another Green World" because this winter has been bookended musically with lots of Brian Eno, and because those three words to me embody the sense of place, near-but-far, that I connect to when I look through it.
