"It is with great satisfaction that I share with you my Easter Glamour Portrait experience. Have you ever gotten a present that just keeps on giving?"
from "Easter Glamour Portrait Studio x4 - Apocalypse Forever"
"Easter Glamour Portrait Studio" has occurred each Easter Sunday from 2009 to 2012. An empty studio in Brooklyn, New York is borrowed for one night only, and a world of backdrops, costumes, and props is installed. For this celebration of Spring, a group of friends and collaborators are invited to come play, get a makeover, and have their portrait documented with Polaroid film.
"Easter Glamour Portrait Studio" is inspired by the American photographic tradition of quick studio portraits made in shopping malls or discount super chains. Typically, the experience involves a simple studio setting, exaggerated poses and props, and an often garish makeover. The customer quickly receives wallet sized portraits they can exchange with their classmates, family, and friends.
