A collaboration with Alexa Nikol Curran

We've been admiring the moody images on photographer Alexa Nikol Curran's instagram feed for a while now. When she recently contacted us about collaborating on a creative shoot, we knew it was the perfect match. Here are a few of our favourite photos from Curran's photo series featuring pieces she selected from our collection, and a quick Q&A with the talented photographer.

I always try to create a narrative with my work - I definitely seek out subjects who are willing to be vulnerable.

Emily Valentine: Your instagram bio says 'Los Angelas for now', where else have you lived, and where would you like to go?


Alexa Nikol Curran: 'Los Angeles for now' is very much me not wanting to put roots in the ground out here - but for the first time in my 3 years of living in hollywoodland I am finally starting to feel at home. That safety and security is such a welcomed and overdue feeling - if I run anywhere else it would be NYC.

 

EV: Your photos are so evocative, are you trying to convey a mood when you're shooting or does it happen naturally? 

 

ANC: I always try to create a narrative with my work - I definitely seek out subjects who are willing to be vulnerable. Certain images I will have in my head for months and months just waiting for the stars to align, others do happen organically.

 

EV: What's your favorite thing about being a photographer in LA? 

 

ANC: The community that I am beginning to build - it's part of what is making me feel at home.

 

EV: How do you decide who to collaborate with? What drew you to Emily Valentine? 

 

ANC: I think it is so important for female artists to support each other and I thought this was the perfect opportunity for a collaboration.

 

EV: What's you favorite Emily Valentine piece? 

 

ANC: Lunar ring! And Duo Circle studs.
