My philosophy in collaborating on creative projects is embracing trust in your collaborators. Allow them to do what they do best, without stepping on their process or micromanaging their talent. That’s why I feel we are producing a beautiful magazine with Curiosus for Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University Physicians.

I wanted to take a moment and introduce you to the Werremeyer Creative partners who help put the artistry in the science.

Camila Carlow

Camila is a Guatemalan-born artist based in Bristol, England. She works in a range of mediums, from fine art painting and photography, and as a cinematographer for video production. Her animations have screened in Glastonbury Festival, and at the Roxy Bar in London.

Short film productions she has been involved with have been selected in numerous film festivals around the country, including Encounters International Short Film Festival at the Watershed in Bristol, Newport International Film Festival, and BFI Future Film Festival in London.

She currently spends her time marketing her artwork and freelancing as a photographer and cinematographer for short film productions and corporate video productions.

Jay Fram

Jay is the photographer agencies call on to craft evocative, honest portraits of real people and places. Authentic, emotive and maybe a little off-kilter, his images tell stories even when they stand alone.

Although he never set out to be a photographer, he enjoys talking to people, and in his early days, photographing became an access point, a pretext for looking and asking, a reason to retell the story.

He works with clients across the country who want to tell the unlikely stories that inhabit regular people. Sometimes the stories are real and sometimes we make them up, though either way, finding the authentic emotion is the real creative work.

You’re never quite certain what someone will bring to a photograph, and that sense of the unexpected is what makes it exciting.

Abigail Goh

Abigail is a Singaporean illustrator who hustles in New York City. She hopes her art encompasses her love for people, life and creativity. Her intent is to plant visual metaphors that can energize the creative mind and communicate intelligence in a lyrical manner over all platforms.

The New York Times, Boston Globe, Google, Washington Post, Huffington Post and Guardian are some of her clients.
