My light nude series Dream Away will be showing at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco from May 1st to the 30th, artist reception May 1st from 5pm - late. Please join me as we celebrate the culmination of this light and flowy nude series. More shows to come.
My two areas of focus at the moment are two different sides of a coin. These are the basis for new series I will be working on for future gallery shows:
Alone -- the abandonment of the facades we erect to shelter ourselves from the outside world for the simple satisfaction of being with oneself.
Get lucky -- Finding that moment of intimacy where you are finished preparing to go forth into the night, when you are feeling energized about your self.
Both will involve limited clothing with partial to full nudity. I look for models who are comfortable embodying a role, becoming the character, and embracing the narrative. Rather than posing, I seek natural and motivated movements.
If you're popping through town, or live in the neighborhood and are just 'curious', drop me a line and we'll shoot and make some crazy-cool shit. Typically, I always strive to find characters that we'll create and cloak them in an interesting light story. And I always have a relaxed (but focused) atmosphere on set.
WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA: I occasionally put up castings for our more grand projects -- these are the big concept stuff that book weeks ahead of time. We can only do a couple of these a year typically for our gallery shows, and we're after a very specific look. A list of exhibitions can be found at -- http://ransommitchell.com
Open to selectively test with wardrobe designers or stylists, MUAs, hair stylists and models. It never hurts to ask, but I'm usually buried in one project or another. So I'll say up front that I'm sorry if I can't reply in a timely manner.
