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 #5: Rockaway Beach

Matt Hill

This Wednesday past, on the full moon, Gabe, Sylvester, Mabel and I spent a brisk evening on the beach at Rockaway. Having previously seen Sylvester's panoramics from when he was volunteering, we decided that the beauty of the repeating shapes from the concrete supports for the now-missing boardwalk was of such beauty that we were simply compelled to make art in that scene. Of course, we got to see the continuing efforts to clean up and rebuild Rockaway on the way in, and seriously, it's still not good there. My heart goes out to those displaced, and I hope that they find housing soon, and perhaps their new homes.

On to the art. I decided to roll the dice and continue the Night Paper Series. Our brave soul, Sincerely Y Ours, came ready to bare all and dress in paper when the temperatures reached the freezing point.

Here are my two top favorites:



And one portrait I just couldn't resist taking:
