Alexa Meade makes photographs of people that look like oil paintings. And here’s the catch: she doesn’t do it with post-production, or with a fancy filter, or in any other high-tech way. She simply paints her subjects and their surroundings to look like actual oil paintings. Then she photographs them. Simple. Brilliant. Beautiful. I love this kind of outside-the-box thinking and creative problem solving. Sometimes the simplest approch is also the most elegant and effective.
