I am delighted to share some favorites from my latest shoot with Coltrane at the Slipper Room in NYC, plus two exciting announcements!

The backstory is that I had a vision of shooting a NIGHT PAPER session someplace with a beautiful proscenium arch / theater. Unbeknownst to us at the time, one of our previous volunteers works at the Slipper Room, and when I mentioned my dream of this space to Mabel, she reached out to Sincerely Yours and before you know it, we visited the Slipper Room to scout the location.

This is the result of the scouting, but the story doesn't end there! While there, we met with Creative DIrector Todd Beers who invited us to do something amazing - be the first to be artist-in-residence at the Slipper Room as a visual artist. Exciting, indeed!

Long story short, I am announcing two events I would love for you to attend:


NIGHT PAPER EXHIBITION @ The Slipper Room Gallery: May 5 - June 2, 2013

"Artist Matt Hill presents NIGHT PAPER a self-funded fine art project that combines cut paper art with night photography. The result is a surreal combination of the dilation of time and the beauty of people from all walks of life and all ages dressed in only paper art fashions. Join the Slipper Room gallery and artist Matt Hill as we present PAPER BURLESQUE a live show experience unlike any that has come before.

Come see a live burlesque art show where all the dancers are clad in paper fashions created by Matt Hill. As part of his ongoing project, NIGHT PAPER, Matt will also be doing a live photo shoot of burlesque dancers during the performance."
