NIGHT PAPER with Fem Appeal

Matt Hill

Last night the talented and energetic Fem Appeal joined us for a shoot in Astoria. We explored a rainy N/Q between 30th Ave and Ditmars, and had a lot of fun explaining, "it's Fashion Week" to curious late-night subway riders. You rock, Fem – and you looked amazing in my first dress-form cut paper fashion. Enjoy the set!

NIGHT PAPER with Suffragent and Richard Louis Boccia

Matt Hill

Last evening we made beautiful art with Suffra Gent and Richard Louis Boccia on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Mabel secured a gorgeous lounge / 3rd floor rooftop area from a friend of ours (and permission from the building!) we embarked upon an amazing shoot with the creative duo.

This is the first time I've made what I'm calling "Facebeards" – a combination mask and body piece. Here are a couple of them:

This was a very fun, collaborative shoot and we're grateful to Suffra Gent and Richard for joining us. Here are the picks from the shoot:

NIGHT PAPER with Heather Whatever on Rockaway Beach

Matt Hill

Mabel and I had a great shoot with an old friend this evening – Heather Whatever. We previously shot with Heather in Brooklyn in the snow and she was one of our seven performers at the Paper Burlesque. This fine Labor Day Weekend evening, we met up at Rockaway Beach.

I admit I went a little crazy making Heather's mask, which really ended up being a headpiece. I love it, and she looked downright amazing in it. We had fun with sand and sky and surf. Enjoy!

NIGHT PAPER with Becca at Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon

Matt Hill

This evening I had the pleasure of making art with a dear friend. Becca and I have known each other for some time, and when she volunteered for NIGHT PAPER I was both humbled and delighted. After some other mis-adventures earlier this week (like me not feeling well enough to travel out to Cannon Beach, forest fires all over Oregon, etc.), we finally, at the literal and figurative 'eleventh hour', made time to shoot here in northern Portland under Cathedral Bridge in the park below (I leave tomorrow!).

While avoiding groups of teenagers having a mini party, opossums and a whole family of raccoons, we managed to shoot this cool set of night paper portraits. Thanks for being wonderful, Becca! Enjoy:
