About the Warpaint series:
“I have been collecting and altering antique cabinet cards for over ten years now. I draw inspiration from the subjects captured in the images, and believe this series is a homage to the strong women being depicted. These photos are largely discarded pieces of history laying waste in antique stores. My intention is to breathe new life into these relics and give them a new home in the world.”
