Interviewing Maia Flore

Last week I had the opportunity to interview the young artist Maia Flore, who I met a few years back at a Photo Alliance portfolio review in San Francisco. We stayed in touch, and this summer her first book, Rememories was published. The photo above is from her new book. You can see the resulting review here on LensCulture.

The interview was fascinating--the way that Flore remains close to the ideas and visions she had as a child is remarkable. She has retained the powerful imagination of a child, and perhaps this is one reason some of her work looks so fresh. She has the great fortune to have a grandmother who understands her work and works with her, assisting Flore in creating her images. How many photographers today can say that thier grandmother is a proud assistant and collaborator? I wish my grandmother was still alive so we could work together. 

I will be following the work of Flore with interest. Stay tuned for an exclusive invite-only story in the new Storehouse Spaces platform in beta. If you don't recieve an invite, and want one, email me at rh@rebeccahornephotography.com
