Last Tuesday, I was in a group art show with some incredible local San Diego artists! It was set up by Magic Brotherhood at the Tin Can. I selected 8 images from several different European tours I went on with ASTRA, black and white only. It will be up for the next 3 weeks if you you’re in the area and want to check it out.

To see all the promotional, editorial, live and tour photos I have done with ASTRA over the years, go HERE.

Here are the art show selections:

ON THE ROAD, SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE.

PISTOIA MUSIC FESTIVAL, ITALY.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show! It was super fun. Big extra special thanks to Danica of Magic Brotherhood for setting it up. Angry Dragon for the heavy rad live music, and my buddy Brian E for DJ-ing.

“Where The Hell Has Noa Been?” Plus images from my solo art show.

share:

Last time I blogged was back in September last year. I have received so many messages asking why I haven’t blogged or posted new work recently. Well here’s the answer. Life’s been weird- as it has been I’m sure for all of us.

Since my cat Russia died 1.5 years ago (he was with me for 17 years), things started to get a little heavy for me. Then my husband and I who had been together for 14 years, split up in September and are divorcing… It’s all good though! We are still best friends and will always be family. He’s wonderful and we care for each other very much, just moving in our own directions… Then more and more heavy stuff sort of just kept happening and the whole time I wasn’t feeling like blogging. I guess I needed time to be sort of introverted to a certain extent, like we all do at times. Reaching back into your life and preparing to come back out – experiencing the light, the dark, and everything in between. So, that’s a little bit about where I have been – I am back to sharing my work now and have a ton of upcoming posts from all sorts of shoots and incredible weddings to share, I can’t wait!

I have also used all of these experiences to take me to the next level of my work as an artist as well as in my workshop content – and THAT is what I am seriously excited for…

During the past year or so, my film camera that I have had since I was 11 (my first camera) had a roll in it that I shot on randomly.  I sort of let IT tell ME when to shoot. And I didn’t question it or ignore it. This was all portraiture. Something intuitively documenting a very strange time in my life full of massive changes– I also took some other photos during this time on other cameras (including digital) and when I was asked to do a solo art show at Tin Can via Magick Brotherhood (I was interviewed HERE)- I decided I would make it personal, very personal, and extremely intimate. I could have chosen to show some of the more “well-known” images I have or ones that I knew people would like, but instead I decided to make the show about me and my experiences, for me, and for nobody else- this was cathartic and certainly the most personal joy I had experienced in a very long time…

Intimacy was a huge theme in the show. Showing my first nude photo of myself publicly almost felt like it wasn’t half as intimate as the rest of the images are for me.  I felt like everything was exposed, so I might as well be too. Fuck it. The art show documented everything from when Russia died to a few months ago- And for me tells a very personal story of my experiences during that time, mostly through people as mirrors. This is why the selections I made were strictly portraiture of the people who came in and out of my life during this time, the muses, the friends, the lovers, the inspirations & the conversations that all had a profound effect on me… I dedicated the entire show to my feline love Russia. Which is why the show starts and ends with him. I also had my friend artist Frank Melendez draw a third eye on me that night- in honor of Russia and I and our “third-eye kiss” we used to do.

The idea for me was to document a very difficult, crazy, weird and beautiful time in my life, but to do so as if it was already nostalgic- hence so much high grain, blurriness, out-of-focus shots etc.

The catharsis of putting these experiences in to my WORK as an artist, in real-time, was something I cannot put into words.

Natalie & Brynn in Maryland (digital, Polaroid, 35mm, Holga)

This beautiful wedding is featured on Rock ‘n Roll Bride! For more images and details, click below.

Thank you Natalie & Brynn for everything! And especially for the very kind words on Rock ‘n Roll Bride: “Besides the music, the most important thing to us was the photography. I’ve endlessly and outwardly spoken this, but Noa of Feather Love Photography is the bee’s knees. After our rehearsal dinner, the night before the wedding, we ran into each other in the hotel courtyard and she ended up hanging out with our bridal party and us for the night… while everyone was passing around my brother’s apple pie moonshine. She is so down to earth and such a beautiful person, which her photographs entirely reflect.”
