Over the last year or so I’ve been been doing less studio work with seamless paper backdrops. I’ve either been doing shots in locations like hotels or creating sets like this one. This was loosely inspired by Twin Peaks’ Red Room (or the Black Lodge if nerds like me want to get technical about it). I saw the red curtains going from the floor to ceiling told myself I wanted a room like that. I found several sets of red velvet curtains at a vintage store and bought them all. Also featured in this photo is a chair from the 1960s or 70s I found at the same store I got the curtains and a lamp from the 1970s I got from my friend Gabrielle Faust, who is horror and sci-fi author, artist, and more. Just about the only thing that isn’t vintage is Hattie. Although, she is from the 1980s.
