What, exactly, is a video portrait? According to "unstoppable creative duo" Hunter & Fox, it's a short clip set to music that captures something essential about its subject. The LA photographers and videographers have published two such portraits as part of a larger series, the first of Vanessa Hernandez of The Vaguely and the second of jewelry designer Suggie Quesada of Trillery. Watch, above, as Quesada crafts some sort of serious body jewelry to the tune of Clams Casino's "Realist Alive"—and stay tuned to Hunter & Fox's Vimeo channel for more portraits.
