Project Edge

Amplify stories of humans who engage the sharp edge of life in order to do good in the world.

There are three key pieces to a successful EDGE session: a willing participant, a guided or shared adventure and personal growth. These three combine to create a moment in which trust is shared, reflection facilitated and an image captured. These portrait sessions have been described by participants as a kind of therapy session. I work through a timeline: what brought you here, how have you grown while here, how do you use that in your work moving forward. The questions are personal; I dive deep and it is at times uncomfortable. The questions are demanding. I realize that this is when I see my best self in action. As I push my edge, you will see my images improve and my style evolve.

 
   Rhiannon Klee    My style relates directly to my time studying Mandala painting in Nepal. My instructor continually made me start over until I got it right. Eventually, I learned that the more I let go of the specific outcome, the more flow I would find (and the less shaky my hand would be). I've adapted the meditative style of mandala painting with a subconscious flow where I don't think too much about the colors or shapes but rather let my mood or feelings surrounding the subject influence my choices. In this way, I feel magic can be made and the art is truly reflective of a specific moment in time.

   Rhianna Leigh Stallard    Painting is my oxygen. I’ve spent most of my life with a brush in my hand. Over the years I’ve danced between it being my profession and my escape. At this point, I’m content having it be the thing that I do that makes time stand still. I do it for the love of it and I’m happy to share that love with the world.

   Elyse DeLisle    I am a self-taught printmaker, living on the road and sharing my experiences through print.  Printmaking began as an act of catharsis in my adult life. It has since grown to fill a more meaningful space where I can lead with my heart.  Today, I live and work in my 1986 travel trailer, which was gutted and renovated by hand, to serve as home base and a mobile print studio. I travel the United States with my sketchbook in tow, seeking new experiences to lean into and root myself. I’m constantly looking for new ways to share ideas through my sketchbook and connect people with the outdoors through print.

 Steven Streisguth  Multidisciplinary Designer. Artist. Cyclist.  After his first Legendeer experience, Steven could no longer endure being stuck inside his studio space after his 9-5 gig, so he decided to start putting in some saddle time on the roads and trails of Northern California. Armed with just a brush pen and jersey-pocket sized sketchbook, he began jotting down quick landscape studies in between bites of Clif bars during breaks on his training rides. This unusual combination of activities quickly gained the attention of other riders, and was the beginning of many of friendships in both the cycling and design communities. Most importantly, it was through this practice that Steven discovered how significantly these two communities overlapped, forming a supportive network for all aspects of his personal and professional interests.  www.lowfi-steve.com  Instagram: @lowfi_steve
