“Le Blanc Noir,” a new personal project by Liz Von Hoene

Liz Von Hoene has produced a new personal project called “Le Blanc Noir,” with her daughter Piper Von Hoene as the model and with art direction by Liz’s studio manager, Meghan McNeer. Here’s Liz on the project:

“‘Le Blanc Noir’ is a personal project featuring portrait landscapes of my daughter Piper. Each landscape plays on the most intrinsic of colors, black and white, to explore the isolation of adolescence while capturing the beauty and innocence of youth. By stripping my landscapes down to those two basic colors, I created a study of how she could coexist within each ‘black’ or ‘white’ landscape. While shooting the portraits, we wanted to put these concepts into motion. In the video, Piper runs a seemingly endless distance into adulthood, while still effortlessly blending into her landscapes.”

    It now makes sense how Liz creates such beautiful work.
    Beautiful inspirations in her own home.
