This coming Monday, Phlearn.com will be interviewing Conceptual and Fashion/Portrait Photographer Janna Park and the incredible team behind Where is Donnie?
Photographer: Janna Park
Creative Director: Brittney Flanders
Assistant/Lighting: Jeanne’ Le Roux
Model (Donnie): Jessie Jarma Lee Merriman
Model (Frank): Zach Terry
On Monday Janna and her team will be releasing the full BRAND NEW set of photos titled “Where is Donnie?” which is inspired by the movie Donnie Darko Exclusively for Phlearn.com
Janna and her creative team have been planning this photo shoot for about a month.
We wanted to recreate iconic scenes from Donnie Darko, while giving it our own twist. My specialty is fashion, so we definitely wanted the images to be consistant with my style. We thought, why not make Donnie into a girl? Everything else just kind of fell into place after that. – Janna Park
They have let me in on their creative process as a whole and I couldn’t be more excited. On Friday we have behind the scenes photos to share, actual photos and so much more.
Where is Donnie? was shot on October 20-21 of 2014, and all 20 of the images will be released exclusively on Phlearn.com THIS FRIDAY.
