The Makers Project
The Makers ProjectOctober 26, 2012
Atlanta-born photographer Jennifer Causey knows a thing or two about the creative process. Now based in Brooklyn, New York, Causey is a professional lifestyle photographer. Her work has appeared in numerous national publications including this month’s issue of Garden & Gun (Roanoke City Portrait).
Jennifer has spent the past two years visiting various Brooklyn-based artists, craftsmen, and designers in their studios and workspaces. From tailors, to bakers, to painters, to even an artisan axe maker, she’s had the opportunity to document each artist’s creative process. This inspiring personal project has been compiled into the new book, Brooklyn Makers. With the South’s rich history of craftsmanship, you can bet there are more than a few Southern-born makers in this collection including Odette jewelry, Kings County Distillery, and Appalachian Press letterpress.
When asked why she started this project, Jen admits that it was out of mere curiosity, which quickly grew into an obsession. “… each studio visit was better than the last and I was constantly driven by the discovery of new makers.”
