What emerges when you paint a portrait with light?
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. In this series, a mini-beamer was used to project photographs of hand-woven quilts and abstract paintings of Piet Mondrian, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Ossip Zadkine onto a model.
Anahí, a professional model and photographer, posed for the photographs and provided valuable suggestions throughout the photoshoot. The series was shot in a home studio which was largely devoid of props, except for a Red Blue Chair by Piet Rietveld, a Sexy Relaxy Chair by Richard Hutton, and a "Le Corps Parfait"Mirror by Berenice Goni.
The photographs in this series have their own unique geometry, form and color. Magic happens when a three dimensional model becomes a canvas and is bathed in two-dimensional images of quilts and paintings.
