Cathedral      2012 - 2013

The Cathedral is a series of photographs engaging the use of mise-en-scène as a visual tool. The presence of the woman in the silver lamé dress within the semi-illuminated space is enigmatic and mystical.

The woman simultaneously belongs and is separated from her space – a condition of her life. The barn, as necessary stage, evokes a cathedral through the stunning architecture and accidents of light. Order, harmony, and movement within the frame create a story that is unfolded within a specific beauty of interior meaning.

Relationships abound between the two photographic series of Cathedral and Pixie (Sugarfree, Violin and GlassBoxStage). The semi-illuminated image creates a scintillating chiaroscuro effect. In each series the woman, the dress, the choreography, the space, and the light play a pivotal role.
