Melissa Mankins Oregon JAM feature (8)
Mankins shoots Finley in a vintage slip on a stage at Paper Moon. Rather than trying to control each aspect of the pose or scene, Melissa tells stories through the instinctive movements of the model and her surroundings. “There’s a composition that happens between what I’m seeing and what the model is doing,” she says. “I like capturing how people are.” (Photo by Helen Torney)
