‘Shadow and Light’ Series 2012
‘Shadow and Light’ is the direct translation of ‘Ying & Yang’, the concept of the balance of good & evil, where once cannot exist without the other.
This series portrays fairytale characters of both good and evil through the techniques of narrative and fashion, allowing the viewer to escape from everyday life, taking on the identities of supremacy, innocence and heroism.
Creating this folio came naturally to me, as storytelling, day dreaming and play are a huge part of my own identity. This year was particularly challenging on a personal level for myself, therefore creating the folio allowed me to not only express how I felt (sometimes as the drowning damsel), but also who I desired to be (the strong and fearless heroine).
