A filmic photograph depicting elements of fairy tales, nostalgia and mystery wrapped up in an evocative snap shot with no beginning or ending. The dress in the image was discovered in a charity shop which is an actual vintage ball gown from the 1920's.
The Fine Art Photograph was taken using 35mm transparency film and then a C-Type print is produced using a process used in the colour darkroom called a photogram.
The figure in my image is my sister who collaborated with me in this project called 'Being A Girl', as the performer. The project took place in 2003 when she was just 14 years old. The location is a cemetery in Osterymouth, Mumbles, Wales. Its a place full of past lives who have played significant roles in music, maritime, publishing and war time heroes.
