This series makes use of projection photography---a technique that originated in the 1960s with the work of John French. It involves projecting photographic images onto a model.
The Sixties were a time of pop art, psychedelics, rock-and-roll and hippie culture. Much of the early projection photography has a 1960s pop-art feel. This series was aimed at replicating that groovy feeling using iconic Warhol images, graffiti expressions, abstract expressionist paintings and hippy beads and textiles.
In the first part of this series, images of Andy Warhol paintings and graffiti expressions are projected onto a model using a mini-beamer. In the second part, the emphasis shifts to abstract designs. This begins with projections made from paintings by Yves Klein and Bram Bogart, and is followed by images of tropical beads and textiles.
Asimira Iliac, a professional model, artist and rope expert, posed for the photographs and provided valuable input and suggestions throughout the project.The series was shot in a home studio, which was largely devoid of props, except for a Sexy Relaxy Chair by Richard Hutton, a Rattan Peacock Chair, and a mirror.
