After collaborating as deputy style editor and design director of Martha Stewart Weddings, and working at brands like Anthropologie, J.Crew, and Condé Nast, Shana Faust and Alexa Mulvihill channeled their experience producing award-winning editorial imagery into Permanent Press Editions, a Brooklyn-based workshop that specializes in original art. Using a multi-disciplinary approach—art directing, styling, designing, and shooting—they create distinctive photographic collections that capture unexpected moments of beauty. Whether referencing sculptural cellophane wrappers or moody botanicals in full bloom, the compositions reflect Faust and Mulvihill’s shared passion for crafting, fascination with visual narratives, and obsession with detail.
In addition to conceptualizing and photographing each themed edition, Faust and Mulvihill collaborate with design firms and architects on distinctive and cohesive series, custom editions, and site-specific art. Printed with archival-quality pigments on matte cotton rag paper, the photographs are available loose or framed in solid wood with plexiglass to ensure their lasting allure.
