Aleah Chapin is a figurative painter currently working in Brooklyn that I'm extremely privileged to have met at a wedding many years ago in Ohio. Her work features large scale nudes, often in groups, set in landscapes from the West Coast of Washington State where she grew up. I find her work unique, inspiring, and extremely beautiful while highlighting the struggles of age, health, and what beauty means. Aleah has been a great friend to me, and I was ecstatic to visit her studio to photograph her and the objects that she uses in her work. Find information about Aleah here and here.
