Spotlight on Photographer Wendy Hope
Here’s Wendy’s story in her own words:
In May I connected with Art To Frames Creative Director, Fernando Pacheco through the New York Burlesque and performing arts community. The company was looking to shoot product and lifestyle as part of their re-brand for 2015. Having first opened in 1929 they had a long history but very little had changed in the last 7 years. The photography was intended as part of a larger effort to breathe new life into a very traditional brand.
Art To Frames provides made-to-order printing and framing services for museums and auction houses throughout NYC. In 2005 the company opened up its services to the general public for the first time and has been growing ever since. Everything is hand-made in Brooklyn and every order is custom-built. The same level of quality that a major museum would get is available to everyone and is surprisingly affordable.
In addition to traditional printing and framing, Art To Frames also does Canvas Prints, Acrylic Prints, and with WindowPix and PinPix can create custom printed window privacy film and self-healing corkboards.
What began as another facet of my summer work hustle, surprised me with amazing opportunities. I learned more about extremely technical lighting specifically for the nuances of the product and simultaneously opened up a door to showcase my work at both Photoville and again at PDN PhotoPlus Expo.
At Photoville we featured my beauty images printed on gloss acrylic, which really brings out the punchy colors and sharp detail. For PhotoPlus the images will be my Film Noir series printed and framed. On October 22nd I’ll be speaking briefly on beauty photography and my work with ArtToFrames. The company will be showcasing new products and be on-hand to answer questions from professional photographers and artists.
ArtToFrames will also be showcasing the work of two young women artists who we think represent the next generation of photographers. We have Anita Anti, featured as PDN’s 30 under 30, as well as a surprise guest photographer.

For the aesthetic of the booth and all contributing artists, I’m showcasing an older Film Noir series called Vol De Bijoux, (Jewelry Heist) inspired by classic films of this genre. The fun and challenging part of this project was more than just studying the technical aspect of film noir lighting, relevant hair and make-up, props but also finding a way to translate it into a beauty and cosmetic related narrative.
Together with our interior designer Margot Jordan of Brooklyn Dogwood, we chose to frame the series in a beautiful black rounded frame #10050 with a double mat of white and black to support but not distract from the photography itself.
