ANF: How would you describe your vision/philosophy when it comes to photography?
It is great to be back after a hiatus to see the San Diego arts scene flourishing. All in all, everyone is still at work, producing, creating and making the world a little bit brighter for everyone.
ArtsNFashion's winter 2012 issue is about serving others, making people happy, seeing the glint of excitement in their eyes, or the sincerity of a “thank you” or a “job well-done”. So many events in this winter issue (Bravo San Diego Awards, Best Dressed Awards) honor people. People that give of themselves through their art, their time, their volunteering efforts, their creativity. This holiday season, let’s renew our commitment to our work and remember the reason we are doing what we do: to help and celebrate people.
This issue is dedicated to fun, laughter and the comedians of the world who help to provide it. They are entertaining, crazy and a little goofy. And, they are also doing us all a huge favor each time they take the stage. The art of making people laugh is a magical experience for the Comedian whose by-product of laughter is therapeutic for the audience. There have been numerous documented studies showing the positive effects of laughter on the body.
Pop culture has always been an indicator of what is in fashion, so it is no surprise that 1920's style is once again a huge hit with the remake of The Great Gatsby coming out later this year.
ArtsNFashion magazine’s sophomore issue is all about People. In art as in life, no man is an island. In this issue, we find many artists from different walks, but with similar stories of being helped or helping others with their art, inspiring or being inspired and providing outlets or looking for outlets to display their work.
