Taylor Swift Series

For 2022 my directions have changed for my mental health. I started to create two projects, one being a bit heavy in subject matter, while the other one was simply just for fun. This is that project.
This project is about recreating old and new art driven from Taylor Swift eras. I am creating old and new album art or inspired art from music videos released. Since Taylor is re-releasing her old work for copy right purposes I decided to attempt to blend some of these aesthetics or anticipate what they may be when they do come out.

Because I am making these in winter and most of her albums are summer or spring vibes [aesthetically] it’s been a fun challenge trying to figure out how to do it creatively. For this project I had a few goals.

Goal 1: If a new TV [Taylor’s Version] was coming out and hadn’t been released by the date of the shoot for that specific era, I drew inspiration from old music videos specifically and changed a few things that made them a bit more up to date with who she is at 32 and not who she was at the date the album was released [small switches like gowns to pantsuits]. I also wanted to do some old art inspired images from what she originally shot and blend it with ways I could make it my own.

Goal 2: If I was creating art driven by albums she already owns, I focus a portion of the session on her existing art, shoot sessions, or music videos and make it pretty similar. The second half of the session would be finding a song that speaks to me visually, creating that space in my head and executing it in person, rather than do her ‘anticipated new art’ since that category won’t be applicable for that album.

Example for Evermore I am focusing on the song: “Right Where You Left Me,” and even for Red although new art came out, I did focus a portion of the shoot on “I Bet You Think About Me,” since she recently did release that as a music video.

Overall, this has been a blast.
