Feature: Ophelia Olive

I don't know if you guys remember, but I used to do features on other artists I admire, and for some reason I dropped the feature feature (ha!) a while ago.

So this feature on Ophelia Olive is long overdue, especially as it seems that Ophelia Olive herself has sort of stopped her project. What you're looking at above are actually all self portraits. Yep, Ophelia, a fictional character and alter ego of Nekole (who I shot here and here), took all of her own photos, styled herself, did her own makeup, and even photoshopped these photos (well, I guess Nekole did all of that). The crazy thing is that Nekole was good at ALL of these things. Before she moved to NYC, Nekole was the model to shoot with if you wanted a really, really awesome model. It turned out she was also the photographer, the stylist, and the makeup artist. Be sure to check out her images here. Be careful though, it's not appropriate for a work computer.
