Photographic Conceptualizations of Jarrad Henderson

First Take: Picture Girl

Jai Lacole, also known as ‘PG’ for Picture Girl, grew up on the West Side of St. Louis where drugs, homicide and crime were always at an all time high. Her thirst to be more alive than half the broken down lives of her neighborhood thrust her to Columbia, MO for college. A double major in sociology and photography at the University of Missouri,  PG’s body art is not only a personal trademark, but also is her connection to her past and a constant reminder of the many obstacles she has conquered.  I did my personality profile on PG and will have a video of the behind the scenes of the shoot coming soon as well as the video for the project. Stay tuned.

  2. Damn Jarrad, these shots are mindblowing. I feel like I should assist for you in the studio sometime. I bet I could learn a lot from you.
