About the Class
Parker Pfister photographs a model wearing a dress composed entirely of paper in his studio. He uses an antique 8 x 10 camera to capture paper negatives that give the images a unique and textured quality. Parker talks about how not knowing exactly what's going to happen in his sessions and how being considerate of his shots with the paper negative camera, leads to spontaneous creativity that has to be honed during the moment. He constructs a dark and dramatic fantasy set up to make hauntingly beautiful photographs.
