For Germany's Süddeutsche Zeitung magazine, I photographed Maine artist Jada Fitch in her home studio where she paints her beautiful and naturalistic artwork and creates birdhouses that look like tiny houses, complete with portraits of birds hanging on the wall. The profile--you can see how it was printed in the magazine above--was a behind-the-scenes look at how Fitch creates her work. The magazine had commissioned Fitch to create some custom birdhouses based on vintage German house and apartment designs for a portfolio.

Thank you to Ralf and Anna at Süddeutsche Zeitung for hiring me for the work. It was a real pleasure to spend the afternoon with Fitch, and the resulting work was published both in a regular edition of the magazine and in the special year-end Best Of issue.
