UNVEILED by Laredo Montoneri

Hello Again Loves,

I'm so excited and honored to share with you these portraits that my dear friend, and former coworker, Laredo Montoneri took of me in my home for his personal project UNVEILED. Laredo has been photographing creatives in their natural habitat, from amazing dancers to uber talented jewelry designers, and sharing it across his social platforms. I'm in absolute awe of the results and couldn't wait to have him come to my apartment in Brooklyn to photograph me in my element...


The painting you see above is from my first gallery show this past New York Fashion Week. I wore this same dress the night of the event. I think the memory of that moment was clearly with me at the time he took this picture.


The above photo is one of my favorites...a moment of pure happiness!! I believe it takes a lot of trust with a photographer to really let your guard down. Laredo and I, if nothing else, make each other laugh...


Nothing brings me greater joy than being alone with my thoughts in front of a blank canvas, my paints, and brushes. The possibility to create and bring color and life into the universe is endless...


I find it really difficult to make direct eye contact with people I don't know, and often shy away from staring directly into a camera lens, which is why I found this last photo to be really moving. Now more than ever, I don't want to shy away from anyone, especially myself. I guess this is the truest definition of being unveiled.

I would like to extend an enormous thank you to Laredo for this very special experience. You can see more of his work over at laredomontoneri.com!!

Much love,
Meag xx
