hello kitty gets a mouth

documenting an art project

I was asked to photograph artist Jamie Scholnick's new exhibit, "Hello Kitty Gets a Mouth". Scholnick prepared custom paintings, each of Hello Kitty with a target where her mouth would be. Then the models, dressed in their Hello Kitty war paint, would fire red paintballs at the canvas, thereby "shooting the mouth" onto Hello Kitty.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
