Portrait of Ultra Violet

Portraits of Ultra Violet and her work, in her studio in New York

 

Isabelle Collin Dufresne, better known as Ultra Violet, an artist and muse to Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol – I photographed her and her work in her studio in New York.

“The Messiah is The Message” is one of Ultra Violet’s works that spoke to me the most. It is a message I firmly believe in – you only bring to the world what is truly in you. The purpose of the life of an artist is to distill a message through their practice, artists are the priests of the unknown which they make known through their work.
