A year ago, Makeup Artist Nicole Borgen, Concept Director Joie Shubert and I created a project entitled Tribe. In a politically violent country under a cowardly leader who demeaned women, the concept was about unity and the power of one tribe, one goal and the power of many as one.
The concept was ditched due to multiple scheduling conflicts, though it remains as one of my favorites from an artistic portrait standpoint as well as so many that it reached.
Over a dozen women participated, and many more have reached out to be part of this series, and more have asked if it will ever be a completed series in the future. Until equality and social understanding is met, I'm hoping that someday we will not only resume the series but finalize it as a time capsule of a sad time for equality in our country
