RISA PUNO: AMERICAN CRAFT MAGAZINE

 

I photographed sculpture and installation artist Risa Puno for the cover of American Craft Magazine's April/May 2017 issue. Risa makes interactive sculptures and installations that put a playful twist on familiar pastimes and amusements. The key to understanding her work is to physically engage with it - to use it, touch it, and sometimes even smell or taste it! We wanted the cover to showcase her "Fun & Games" and thought the "in motion" series aesthetic would capture it perfectly.

We had a fabulous time shooting the cover at Ammon Carver Studio in Chelsea and on location in Risa's East Williamsburg studio in Brooklyn, NY.
