“I’ve ALWAYS had a niche for style, fashion and all things creative and artsy. I knew I wanted to become a stylist when I moved to Chicago a few years ago. I saw how much “personal style” was appreciated here and how distinct was ideal so I wanted to project that on a larger scale.” – Ashley Crawford

Inspired by a tradition of organic story-telling, these large format photographs display the face as a map to the world, sharing stories told by lines, expressions, and minute gestures captured by Hudson’s naked perception. Choosing subjects from his family’s home parish in Jamaica, Hudson used natural light to create photos that draw the viewers into the minds and stories of his people.
L’Express, an online news source for the French of Toronto, reported on Hermann & Audrey’s Life Cycles exhibit, 2013. The article mentioned that Life Cycles “brings together both the underground and the trendy people, who tend to be the same without knowing it”, additionally, calling the user-generated video, Bike Life, “one of the main points of interest of the exhibition.” The article also mentioned that the “large format photographs capture the attention [of viewers] and [offer] a sudden urge to jump on a bike.” L’Express is a French-language Canadian newspaper reporting on news, local and international, and everything in between.
PAPERMAG, a print and online magazine that has “been on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984,” published an article entitled “7 Creative People Making Good and Making Bank.” Of the 7, Hermann & Audrey’s Jason Eano, Senior Producer, was the only Canadian listed. They mentioned, “he is a behind the scenes shadow warrior for good, taking on a wide array of clients and forcing collaboration on everything from photography exhibits to fundraisers, all the while advancing the missions of the organizations he works with and raising the money they need to get their work done.” PAPERMAG is a New York City-based independent magazine, focusing on fashion, pop-culture, nightlife, music, art and film.
