Photographer Faith Blackwell and her show, “Sole Purpose,” will be featured for the November IDADA First Friday Art Tour, November 4th, 6-9pm. Admission is free.

Serving as the introduction to a book, Blackwell’s show tells the story of people and their passions, and seeing into their world through their shoes. “It is more than an exhibit displaying pretty shoes,” said Blackwell. “Shoes can represent a memory or a specific time in life where we have experienced joys and struggles.”

Faith Blackwell worked as a marketing coordinator for 10 years before taking the leap into photography. “I always said that photography chose me, because I had no idea, no clue, that when I first picked up a camera, I wouldn’t want to put it down,” said Blackwell. “Senior portraits, business headshots, beauty, and events are my specialties, while I enjoy all types and am most driven when creativity is involved.” Blackwell also has a studio at the Stutz and shares space at the Circle City Industrial Complex.

Faith Blackwell is drawn to fashion photography because she can be as creative as she wants to be, and can take her ideas to the limit. Other programming for her First Friday event will include a selfie station, focusing on shoes, and many of the models for her photos will be on hand to discuss the shoot. “My art is photography with fashion flair,” said Blackwell. “And everyone LOVES shoes!”
