ALRIGHT DARLING PRESENTS: Crystalized
Gathering an eclectic group of queer performers, artists, designers and LGBTQ+ activists. Makeup artist Michelle Webb and Pylot magazine editor and photographer Max Barnett were inspired to create a project that is not only vibrant and futuristic but also a celebration of diversity in today's society.
A team of 14 makeup artists individually placed over 10,000 crystals per model. Each look took between 10- 12 hours to create.
The images are a mixture of tungsten lit, flash lit, and iPhone lit portraits, the video was lit entirely using iPhone torches.
