What does Triiibe have to do with maternity photos?

(Photo by Triiibe from:

Brooke_2I've learned that when many artists collaborate the results can amazing, but the process can be quite chaotic! Have you ever heard the expression about too many cooks in the kitchen? Well too many photographers working on one image can be similar. Luckily three ladies, myself, Brooke Holland, and Sarah Szwajkos were able to take some beautiful photos. (see left & below) However, with three strong willed photographers we had a lot of opinions about the photographs should look and we started to go in a lot of directions making it a bit hard to reign in.

So...what does Triiibe have to do with maternity photos? Nothing really, just that our situation with three artists working together reminded me a bit of Triiibe. I've know about them for a while, and love their photographs, but I always wondered what it would like to collaborate with other artists on a single photograph. The process of taking Brooke's maternity photos with her and Sarah gave me a small taste of what this might be like.

 About Triiibe, from their website: "In 2006 performance artists Alicia, Kelly and Sara Casilio (identical triplets) and photographer Cary Wolinsky formed the collective triiibe to create political and social commentary art."

Did I mention that Brooke &  Colin had twins girls? (Yes, the babies are now here, I'm behind in my posts!) Perhaps one day her girls will follow in the footsteps of their mother, Brooke, and wannabe aunties Sarah & Katie --- oh I hope they are little artists!
