American fashion and beauty photographer Jamie Nelson revels in a hyper-feminine aesthetic built on glamour, sex, and all-American kitsch. Her world is one of pink flamingos and crimson lips, Marilyn Monroe curls and poolside poses. Since setting her sights on photography at 17, Jamie has shot campaigns for the likes of Dior, Maybelline, Urban Decay, and Saks, and editorials and celebrity portraits for Vogue, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. But her most ambitious and arresting project is, arguably, her own life, in which she inhabits a pink pillared mansion, drives a matching pink Mustang, and flounces about in pink marabou. We stepped inside her glistening, gleaming world.
