Tina Eisen – Dropping 2/14
“Welcome to my mind – a place where most people’s fears are turned into an obscure piece of art.
I can tell you what bees taste like, the feeling of broken glass to my bare, fragile tongue, the touch of furry mould on your skin, that’s gotta be worth something.
And all along you feel confused, bewildered, even scared and disgusted and it makes me proud, because in a world of monotony… I made you FEEL.”
Tina Eisen is an editorial and commercial beauty and fashion photographer based in London, UK.
With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Tina has worked with clients such as MaxFactor, Sephora, Ciate, Superdrug, Harvey Nichols, ASOS, Marks & Spencer, ITV, Amazon, Barbour and numerous other well-known global brands and magazines.
it’s not me, it’s you.
Tina Eisen’s signature macro beauty photography takes on the (sickeningly) sweetest of all holidays.
“I have always been cynical about Valentine’s Day. As a spotty teen I was probably just gutted that no candy or flowers ever magically materialised on my school desk and as a grown up the dislike transformed into “how can it be LOVE if society dictates you to declare it?
I’m a lot LESS spotty now and a lot MORE cynical. I will leave small , fun gifts dotted around the house and in friends’ bags but I resent saying the L-WORD that day…so let’s just settle with… ummm… I hate YOU the least.
The IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU drop is just that, small fun gifts dotted around the house for my friends 🙂 “
