Juliette Lewis from FoundFolios recently reached out to Ann Elliott Cutting to ask her permissions to share two of her images in their newsletter. The theme of the newsletter was “Unhinged; an exploration into what is real and not real.” Click here for the complete posting on their site.
Juliette asked Ann to provide some background on each of the images. Here is what she had to say about her Floating House image:
“This piece was created for an editorial assignment for Ladies Home Journal. The story was about a clean home. Knowing that many concepts are repeated in editorial stories, I try to have fun with the assignments and give them a fresh twist. When I sketch the ideas, the most important thing is to stay at it after all the expected ideas have been fleshed out. Sketching a few more ideas usually is when the gems appear. That is how this image came about. (The house model was built by an Architect, and the composite was made by photographing the house on a matt of grass and adding in the sky and flowers. The Art Director was Clare Lissaman.)
Here is what she had to say about the image of Man and Clouds:
“This image was created for a promo piece. It was a new take on having your head in the clouds. I thought that taking it on location and having it be as if the guy is put a little off balance gave the concept a new twist. The final image is a composite with the cloud. “
