Jolei is a local musician who co-owns Moon Caravan Records with her husband. She plays solo as well as with The Milagro Saints, a blues/folk band. Just after these shots were taken she and a friend were performing for an opening at Sizl Gallery in Carrboro that I was doing some promotional materials for.
I caught up with Jolei the first time in Clayton at The Coffee Mill (an indie coffee house that you really should try out.) A few days later I met with both performers at Ralston Arboretum for a more "official" shoot for the publicity shots.
The last image is a concept cover for an album using the photos from the Ralston shoot. Visually I really like it. Conceptually I'm not sure it works unless the artist is planning a departure from her usual style. Still, it evokes some interesting feelings.
