Photographer Chris Sembrot describes in his own words a new series of redheads inspired by his mother.
CS: The idea to start a “redhead” series was first and foremost an homage to to my mother. My mom is a natural strawberry blond and was my first sitter. What began as an environmental portrait, morphed into what is now this more classical portrait series after a recent trip to The Barnes Museum with my wife.
SC: Unsure of the technical approach for lighting or even concept, and idea struck after that evening at the museum. Shortly after, I teamed up with a local wardrobe stylist, Kiley Baun (http://www.shophousedesign.com ) and we got working on a concept that was driven by an elegant wardrobe and utilizing props as symbolism (just like many early European painters).
