The AIGA recently commissioned me to shoot a group portrait of their Women Lead committee for the Design Leader Interview Series. That fit in nicely with my ongoing portrait series of noted graphic designers and it was the first group portrait that I’ve photographed for my series.
We came together for the shoot at the School of Visual Arts, just down the hall from the recording studio where I photographed Debbie Millman in her Louboutins last year. My assistants and I brought in a few hundred pounds of camera and lighting gear and spent a several hours setting up some fairly complex lighting around a painted canvas backdrop, a couple of SVA’s stools, and some well worn apple boxes.
This lovely and talented group of women are former and current members of AIGA’s Women Lead committees. Top row, left to right: Cheryl Heller, Debbie Millman, Jada Britto, Heather Stern. Seated from left to right: Lynda Decker, Deborah Adler.
