NEW WORK - GRIMES for Self-Titled magazine

I got to work with the super talented musician, GRIMES for the cover and editorial of New York based magazine, Self-Titled.  GRIMES is made up of soley Claire Boucher who sings, writes and plays all the music on her album.  She has such a great style, I let it shine through with her makeup and hair.  I got to work with one of my favourite photographers, Alan Chan and we shot this at the Wladorf hotel.  Here are the pics from the magazine spread and a cool Behind-the-Scenes video from the shoot.
