Session Two, The Yellow Wallpaper

On Tuesday May 25, the Atelier lifted the curtain over Zoom to explore our character’s descent into madness.

Leigh began with another set of her incomparable gestures and short poses, then presented three 40-minute vignettes inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story The Yellow Wallpaper, which chronicles a woman’s unraveling as she is confined both physically and by societal expectations.

Reference Photos

Reference photos for each long pose and angle are available now for purchase, $10 for an 8×12 archival print.

Couldn’t Make It This Time?

We are tentatively scheduling our next event for Saturday, June 12 with a long pose. Join our mailing list and follow us on Instagram to keep up with all the information!
