Garet Field Sells- Flavorpill (November 2009)
“Counting Couture” features a new body of work from Los Angeles based photographer Garet Field Sells. Commissioned by non-profit organization Very Public Arts, the photographs feature boldly styled models. Field Sells with Creative Director David Reposar styles the models in bleach white garment bags secured by an elastic gathered cord beneath the hips, and doublewide industrial zippers that run the length of the spinal cord. Although the bags confine the movement of the extremities, the strong, deliberate poses à la couture indicate that they inspire creativity rather than confine it and point to the moment when a blank canvas becomes a fully realized vision.
