Hello! I’m Kevin Russo, a lifelong photographer with over 30 years of experience and a passion for creating images that evoke authentic feelings and personality. I began making photographic images at a young age while growing up in South Philadelphia, PA. I continued my study of photography at The Art Institute of Philadelphia as well as coursework at Tyler School of Art, University of the Arts, and Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. I have been fortunate to exhibit my fine art photography work in notable galleries throughout the United States and teach photography courses and workshops at Camden County College, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center for Contemporary Photography, and in my studio space in Devon, PA.
Hello! I'm Stacie Dale and I am a freelance artist and surface pattern designer. I attended college at Drexel University and graduated with a degree in Fashion Design, I spent 9 years working in different facets of the apparel industry before becoming a mom to my 2 children (now 21 & 22) and creating a keepsake box business; Stacie Dale Designs Inc. I have spent the last 25 years hand painting keepsake boxes, signs, wall art, and murals for clients and began working on surface pattern design in 2019. In addition, I am the editor of Surface Design News; a monthly subscription newsletter reporting on all things related to surface design. I most recently was appointed to the board of Artists Equity Tri-State Philadelphia to assist with organizing their art shows. I met Kevin 2 1/2 years ago and he showed me some of his earlier images he had made of tattooed moms and told me about his idea for the project. I thought it was a great project and together we decided to embark on this year-long work of interviewing and photographing tattooed moms. It has been an absolute joy working on this project and meeting all of the moms and their families.
