Ragnhild Jevne for Vogue Taiwan Beauty May 2014 by Yossi Michaeli
Justyna Neryng is a fine art photographer from Poland, living and working in Brighton, whose photography has flourished into a substantial body of portraiture. Four years ago Justyna begun to collaborate with her daughter Nell on an on-going autobiographical project Childhood Lost, exploring the nature of portraiture and memory: “I am producing a series of portraits that evoke, characters that populate this world we know as childhood. A court of character’s from myths and dreams. The images are aesthetically inspired by portraiture from the Golden Age of Dutch painting. By drawing on paintings as inspiration I am hoping to give a timeless feel to the final images. Key to the project is the painstaking styling and prop building, which I am using to evoke these different persona played out by my daughter.”

argyrism asked you:
This may/may not be true for other people, but when I’m wondering about how you choose your colors, I’m wondering about how you make everything, well, harmonic. Noisemaster is a good example of this: he’s got a wide range of colors, but they all work well together, so it doesn’t end up looking garish. So, how do you go about something like that?
Thank you! I want Noisemaster’s pages to look like I’m just selecting colors at random, but it’s really pretty simple. Sure, I use a lot of complementary pairs, triadic colors, etc., but I generally don’t have too much Color Theory Terminology in my head as I’m planning these pages out.
I know I’m not great at technical explanations, but I hope this sheds a little light on what I’m doing!
