Amy Taylor Inspires 2016 with Refinery29
Refinery29 has spent years connecting with their readership, pursuing issues that are important to their community. They’ve gained a massive following not just for being on the cutting edge of style and beauty, but also for engaging their readers and helping them improve themselves and their worlds. For the online magazine’s 2016 calendar they looked to their readers to inspire the coming year, and brought Amy Taylor to help them create the perfect environment for that inspiration to thrive. The series of images features real Refinery29 community members sharing some of their most inspiring thoughts, all presented on the strong base of Amy Taylor’s sets.
The signature Refinery29 energy remains intact with bright colors, bold shapes, and breathtaking fashion throughout all the photographs that is mirrored in Amy’s sets. Her imaginative use of paper carries the shoot to the next level, bringing three-dimensional feeling into a two-dimensional space. As the subjects enamor us with words like, “What are you gonna do in this vehicle that houses your soul? You gotta be good to it,” and “Don’t be afraid of your own heights,” Amy’s imaginative designs balance the crisp reality of the photographs. Graphic shapes fill space with bold shocks of color, providing a counterpoint to the energy of the featured readers. The balance is crucial to connecting with the viewers who are looking for a dream while staying true to themselves. It’s a new year, and now is the perfect time to be inspired.
