Gillian Grassie

As a Philadelphia commercial and editorial photographer who also maintains a fine arts practice, I make a point to keep current on the art world.  I am photographing an on-going portrait and documentary project with artists in their studio spaces.  A condensed edit of this project can be found at The Artists, while a wider selection of my sessions lives here on my blog.

While many are visual artists, I also pull in others from differing creative fields – musicians, wood-workers, writers, tailors, etc.  While the project is rooted in portraiture, I’m equally as interested in profiling and documenting the artistic and tactile processes behind the work.

This is Gillian Grassie.  She is a harpist, and I photographed with her during a recording session at Turtle Studios in Philadelphia.
