Interview with the Photographer John Rawson

When curating the Passion theme for Miroir Magazine, I came across these amazing portraits by John Rawson. I feel that they embody the very essence of what passion means. These women are powerful, their intensity and strength emanate from the page. I have included shots we did not put in the print issue. John works with a lot of amazing stylists, everything he does is just fabulous.– Nina Pak

Interview with the Artist Jaymi Zents

Q: How do you inspire the powerful and compelling images you create?

A: Working with organic surfaces, from wood to stained papers, skins to fabrics, has always been pivotal for my figures. The patterns in the wood or stain help to decide placement, pose, and movement of my girls. A plain, pure paper or canvas has always proven overwhelming and at odds with my personality. Having to impose my will on something, even a piece of paper seems overbearing and rude. Having parameters to have to work within and play around is more interesting. The challenges of natural surfaces are what makes them so special to draw on. Drawing becomes more interactive, less imposed when there are areas on the original surface to be revered and other areas that interrupt, merging together with the figure.
