This Saturday, I attended the Brutally Beautiful Art Show at the Gastown Tattoo Parlor, and it was amazing! The theme was turn-of-the-century, and people went all out!
A bit about Brutally Beautiful from their Facebook page:
We are Photographer & Artistic Director Amanda Bullick and Hair and Set Stylist Erica van der Basch. We’ve been collaborating for the past 3 years and our individual perspectives coalesced to form Brutally Beautiful. We love working together and with our clients, united by similar aesthetic inspirations and the art we create.
At Brutally Beautiful, we are passionate about customizing every photo shoot and offering a very calm, creative, harmonious environment. Each session involves a detailed process of research, design and production that leads to boldly original images.
The photography display was fantastic, and much of the original photos can be seen on their site here. I, unfortunately, did not realize that it was a dress-up party, (though I should have, knowing the girls putting it on), but I have some great photos of some of the folks that did dress up in their finest!
I would say the show was a great success! Here are some of my favorite shots, and, as usual, some are off focus, cuz pro photog I am not…
Here we have Matty the Englishman looking right proper, and Renee with her awesome sailor inspired tube top dress. I love that dress, and it could be worn anytime, (without the hat) not just at an 1800’s themed party.
