Antoine LaFramboise spends hours behind the camera, but that doesn’t mean he’s a photographer. On his website he proudly proclaims he is a “poet first,” though he seamlessly walks the line between artistic mediums. He often pens poems to accompany his candid black-and-white and softly colored images, and his creativity also spills onto short, dreamy videos set to music. His diversity of mediums mirrors his diversity of artistic subjects; he is just as at home helming fashion shoots as he is putting a fresh spin on real-estate photography, an end he achieves without installing Santa Clauses in every chimney. Weddings inspire some of LaFramboise’s finest work, as he eschews forced poses in favor of photojournalistic shots of a couple’s embrace and dynamic videos that capture the festivities’ joyful music and laughter.

Louisville native Jolea Brown earned her Bachelor's in photography at the University of Louisville, all while interning for Louisville Magazine. It's safe to say she knows her town, and can pick the perfect local backdrop for any family portrait shoot. She travels from spot to spot, immortalizing parents at play with their kids or a bride's big day. She also captures images in her studio, both for private and commercial clients, such as NBC, the American Lung Association, and the Kentucky Derby Museum.

The most famous resident of Cave Hill Cemetery is undoubtedly Colonel Harlan Sanders, the magnate behind Kentucky Fried Chicken. Today he rests within a sublime, highly picturesque landscape, surrounded by enough Victorian tombstones and mausoleums to warrant the cemetery’s position on the National Register of Historic Places.

At Bananas!, helpful textile hunters clothe present-day humans in a varied and shifting selection of vintage threads and timeless fashions. Bodies of all ages, shapes, and sizes pull the past’s shirts over present-day heads ($7–$15), and dresses touch up modern frames with elegance and an alluring hint of anachronism ($10–$30). Men’s True Religion jeans complement the most typical bipedal attributes ($30, size 34/34) and pair well with an irreverent Monty Python tee ($7, size XL). A silk dress ($20, size 12) combined with an elegant handbag ($7–$15) radiates grace, comfort, and memories of walking the gray carpet in Hollywood’s nascent days.
