NOTE: Throughout history, mythology and fairy tales have
served as ways to teach, through the use of metaphor and allegory.
Myths show us the strengths and weaknesses of human nature. For
my Persephone series I selected one single image to work with. It
is a nude floating in water which spoke to me of dreams and
the subconscious and is the central figure on which the myth
of Persephone was recreated. I used the Daylab II to create multiple-slide
exposures on Polaroid 669 film, and then scanned the negative wet.
the results are always unpredictable, part of the process is watching
and waiting to see what emerges from this "water world,"
which is so befitting of Persephone.
Rising" was selected as one of the winning entries in the Women
in Photography International 20th Anniversary juried exhibition.
