Victory Tischler-Blue is a motion picture director and fine art photographer whose dark, single-frame tableaux evokes a deep sense of melancholy, tension and cinematic drama.
"I'm always drawn to the outliers," Tischler-Blue says. "For me, photography is all about intimacy and the element of surprise. There's a magic that comes along with things not planned and staying open to that leaves a lot of space for the unscripted to manifest..."
A former member of the iconic '70s all-girl rock band the Runaways, Tischler-Blue often casts outliers and those who through their own sense of self or the judgments of others - find themselves straddling their own personal edge.
"There's always a minor chord running through my productions - whether it's a motion picture project or a still image," she says. "Everyone has a story - some are just darker than others..."
Born and raised in Newport Beach, California, Victory Tischler-Blue currently divides her time between homes in Los Angeles, Laguna Beach and Palm Springs, California.
