What She Does: For Lindsay Finnen of Fascinating Linds, photography has always been a part of her life. She's had a camera in her face since the day she was born, and was delighted when she discovered the process of double exposures at the age of eight. It was always in the background, but while attending Houston Community College she decided to take a 35mm camera on a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles and was amazed at the emotion that she managed to capture through the lens.
Ever since that trip photography has been her main drive, though she also occasionally performs poetry at Avant Garden and started dabbling in painting two years ago. Photography remains her main focus, though. Her favorite photos so far come from a series she did with model Shina Rae called "Birth of a Tree-Nymph" which show the nude Rae emerging from the hollows of dead trees. Each one is a fascinating dance of human form and magical shadows. Her work is highly emotional, dictated primarily by whatever happens to touch her heart. You can almost feel it beating on the edge of her images.More »
