On our 19th installment of the Obtuse Panda Podcast we welcome Lylah Rose Wolff a photographer and all around unique artist. She gives us her insights on fine art, her lighting techniques and a little bit of life on today’s college campus. Most importantly she let’s us know why she chose a black and white tapestry instead of adding a little color. Very interesting.
More info on Lylah:
My name is Lylah Wolff and I’m an artist based in Cleveland, Ohio. Building relationships with people has become the central theme in my work – whether it’s photographing a client for an event or in asking a stranger if I could make their portrait, I’m driven by the fact that photography allows one to hold on to a moment.
My life as an artist has become a balancing act between creating commercial portraiture for people while maintaining my eye for the arts. When I’m not photographing a client, I use my Yashica 635 twin lens camera and a roll of 120 film as my means of exploring the world around me. I used to struggle with the idea of being both a commercial photographer and a fine artist, but I’ve come to the realization that the two are not mutuallyexclusive, and in that I’ve been set free.
