What is a muse?
A muse is a person or a personified force that acts as the source of creative inspiration for an artist. In an active form, to muse means to consider something thoughtfully and often inconclusively. The title Making Muses refers to the photographic subject but also to the ambiguous engagement between the photographer, sitter and audience of a photographic portrait. Making Muses is a traveling exhibition of photographic portraits by 27 of today’s most talented emerging contemporary artists. All of the photographers are part of Flash Powder Projects, a photographer-focused collaborative venture and publishing company. The exhibition was curated by David Bram and Jennifer Schwartz, the co-founders of Flash Powder Projects
