I found Kourtney Roy via ''Honestly .... WTF".
I just love the concept and how perfectly she orchestrated her idea for this series of photographs. 'Small town girls thinking of the lives they'd rather be living', Genius! We see a prom queen, maid, cheerleader, mother, and more, sitting in front of a cheesy vintage style backdrop. The look on their faces is that of deep thought, anguish, and sadness (All self portraits, might I add) Kourtney's amazing attention to detail is apparent by her selection of wardrobe, accessories and props.
As I perused through her website I found that most of what she shoots has that same vintage flare. I don't know if she works with a team, or does this on her own, but the set design and styling are always impeccable. I love vintage clothes, and there is no shortage of vintage garb to admire in her shots.
I can only assume she is a Helmut Newton fan, since her shots have so much Helmut Newton-like inspiration, which of course I admire and love. This girl has fashion photography coursing through her!
I love Kourtney Roy
