Parts to a Whole
Tezza Barton and Cole Herrmann
After getting married in 2016, we decided to move to NYC to follow our artistic dreams and immerse ourselves into our creations. We like to think of our work as an expression of “the art of life.” We hope to inspire viewers to find the beauty in their own lives, to turn the mundane into the remarkable, to tweak their reality just a few degrees and see the world in a new way.
We wanted to focus on the smaller parts that create the whole. We, as two creators, came together to express a single concept through self-portraiture that shares inspiration by telling the story of how we came to be where we are today.
The partnership that we have created allows us to explore our ideas without hesitation or restraint as we remain honest and open throughout the process.
Tezza and Cole both grew up in Utah, meeting as children through their parents’ friendship. They moved to New York after they got married in 2016. Following programs at FIT and Parsons, Tezza graduated from the University of Utah with her BFA and an emphasis in photography. Cole has a background in technology and programming, but has always had an eye for photography. When Tezza and Cole got together, their creative partnership instantly bloomed as they built off of each other’s energy and ideas.
