We are artists based in Chugiak, Alaska; this website documents our life.
Our explorations of humanity, self and love focus on photography and literature, but we also employ other media such as video, sculpture, and light.
Throughout development of her photographic interests in self-portraiture, lifestyle photography, and documentary photography, Myesha Callahan Freet has focused on the deeply personal, deriving from her mischaracterization by those around her.
Personal evolution of self is reflected in not only her photography, but also her abstract paintings and mixed media sculptures utilizing found objects. She holds a bachelors of fine arts in photography/digital media with a minor in art history from the University of Houston.
Growing up poor in the South made introspection a natural subject. Today, Christian Freet is developing the connection between personality and his past in Louisiana, condensing recent self-awareness into imagery and literature.
Edward Weston, Daido Moriyama, Trent Parke, and Lhamo Dondrub, among others, are inspirations. He is a self-taught artist and designer, with an academic background in chemical engineering; his passion is working along side his wife Myesha, one of Christian’s favorite subjects.
