Tiffany Patton Maintains a Living Balance
SUITED magazine is all about independence and creativity. They focus on telling stories of individuals who go against the grain and create work that often defies categorization. The second issue features two stories with makeup by Tiffany Patton, including an editorial focused on Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s latest apparel collection. The series of black and white images, shot by Joshua Woods, are provocative in their simplicity and internal contrasts, a balance that Tiffany’s work helps to maintain.
Tiffany’s very natural hand offers an accessibility to the models’ looks that makes the compositions particularly arresting. The ungilded styling plays off dramatic arrangement inviting the abstract into our very tangible world. A very light eye shadow is laid on the same model whose glistening lips frame a mouth full of matches about to be set alight. A seemingly bare skinned beauty cradles knotted rope as if it were a young baby. These internal conflicts of mood draw us in, and thanks to Tiffany the equilibrium is feverishly alive.
