We love Dana Boulos! Why? Because we are always inspired by the punky-gril spirit hidden in her work. We got her say yes to work together and partnered up with her to do a shooting in downtown L.A. Here are the photos and interview with Dana. Come check out her interpretations and work!
Hello Dana! Can you introduce yourself a little?
Hi ! I’m a photographer & artist based in LA.
How long have you been taking photos and what’s the initiated passion?
I’ve been taking photos ever since I could remember, but I started to take it seriously about 4 years ago after being asked by Petra Collins to join her all girl collective “The Ardorous”. I was one of the first original members.
Best thing happened so far of being a photographer? Any interesting story?
Having Agyness Deyn tell me she loves my work and looks at my tumblr was super surreal to be recognized by someone I had admired in the fashion industry for years.
What do you try to say from your work?
Honestly I don’t try to say anything, I’m obsessed with color and movement Creating an image that can inspire you is what I want to do. I want people to use their imagination and dream a little.
What did you think when you see JumpFromPaper at the first time?
IS THIS REAL!?!?
You mentioned you want to shoot with JumpFromPaper in a bit of a High-end way, why? What’s the inspiration? Could you share the moodboard with us?
Yes I’ve seen your previous lookbooks they are super commercial, I wanted to turn this lookbook into more of a high end fashion editorial. For casting I wanted to find a model who wasnt just another pretty face but someone who was a true punk at heart. I met Allison our model on the street and scouted her for the shoot. Our stylist pulled some amazing pieces by a new designer Nancy Stella Soto (www.nancy-stella-soto.com) she makes some killer pieces.
Best thing about L.A? Share your secret places you like with us!
Only 30 min away from the beach. Point Dume is beautiful.
A typical day?
