This series makes use of projection photography---a technique that originated in the 1960s with the work of John French, in which photographic images were projected onto a model. In this series, a set of psychedelic images were projected from two mini-beamers onto a model, Kate Ri.
Projection photography wraps images around the body of a model, producing a dream-like effect. For this particular projection shoot, Kate was placed in a darkened room, and was requested to stand, sit and strike her own set of poses. At the end of the shoot, she was asked to "let loose".
The only light source available for the projection shoot was that emanating fromthe two mini-beamers, each of which was loaded with a set of images and was operated in slide show mode. One image after another was wrapped around Kate as she moved around the room. What emerges from this process is a random combination of images layered and beamed through the air, which fall on Kate as she navigates through a mist of colors.
Kate Re, the model for this shoot, is one of Europe’s leading photo models. Kate was born and raised in Belarus, migrated to Poland, and works out of Warsaw. She worked as a tour guide prior to embarking on a career as a model after she was first scouted at a music festival. Kate has been quoted as saying: “I feel like I look better nude. I enjoy it; it's natural for me.”
