What captures your imagination, catches your breath, gives you tingles?
What can you not take your eyes (ears, fingers, lips) off of?
What if we turned it up?
Mugwumpin joins forces with acclaimed photographers to bring your visions of lush beauty to life. It starts with a conversation between you and a Mugwumpin artist. Together, you'll delve into your appetite for the ravishing and sublime. The artist will then immediately transform your ideas into costume and performance. This is a performative manifestation of your beautiful ideal, but amped up: more splendid, more plush, more saturated! You'll go home with a photographic portrait of you and your Mugwumpin artist.
