Despite the fact that I’m my own boss, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I go out and photograph anytime that I want. Like everyone else there are too many things to do and only so many hours in the day.

Rather than lounging around on Sunday morning, I decided to get up extra early and go out and make some photographs. I wanted to catch the morning light and just enjoy walking around Pasadena and Altadena.
It was a morning rich with opportunities to see my community with new eyes. First off, it was early enough that there weren't many people out on the street. So, the usual fodder for my street photography was nowhere to be had. Secondly, it would allow me to see a very familiar environment under very different circumstances.
I felt like I had experienced a pretty successful morning when I was driving back home and spotted the light hitting the front of this church. I immediately knew it would make a good photograph, but I continued driving past it as I was eager to get back home.Read More
Influenced by both fashion photographers and internet bloggers, New York native photographer Chloe Rice gives photojournalism a unique editorial feel.
But in addition to specific artists and authors, it is easy to see from her photos that she could acknowledge the entire world as her inspiration.
Chloe sees trees as “bird umbrellas” and rain clouds as “just parts of the sky that like to laugh until they cry”. In her mind cars all smile and “everything looks prettier with eyelashes". Luckily, Chloe has a series of cameras to capture all of this imagination that she sees.
Chloe’s photos both ask you to remain innovative and inspired, to infinity and beyond!
Chloe Rice recommends the work of Todd Selby.
