We first met Los Angeles photographer and mixed media arist, Tasya van Ree through one of our most beloved wellness gurus, Nitsa Citrine. After shooting for the duo’s project, Women With Superpowers (read more on that here) we soon fell in love with Tasya’s studio work as well – an animation of the connection between worlds: people and their passions, the mystical and the everyday. Her photographs and other works have been exhibited widely in private collections, solo exhibitions, as well as along side the likes of David Lynch, Jessica Lange, Gus van Sant, and Amy Arbus.
Take a peek behind the lens and get into the studio with Tasya – the ultimate off-duty style inspo – with our ‘In The Studio’ series…
