This series makes use of projection photography, a technique in which images are beamed onto a model in a darkened studio. For this series, I asked the model, Valentina, what sort of images would she like to have projected onto her. She replied: "old magic symbols and runes." Drawing on these themes, two series were generated. The first is entitled: "Wicca".
For the second series, Valentina's boyfriend, afantasy illustrator, created a set of symbols to be digitally beamed onto Valentina. When asked what these symbols meant, he answered that this was: "the alphabet of love". Consequently, the "alphabet of love" has been retained as the name of the companion series for this set of projection portraits.
