Desdemona - Her Quiet Trepidation - Self Portrait
Photograph - Photography
Romantic relationships conjure up the deep-rooted issues we have with our caretaker’s and for most of us, that would be the parent relationship. For those that come from an abusive childhood, these issues can become especially dangerous to deal with, in the context of an abusive relationship. Some of that, is expressed here, with Desdemona’s feelings toward her beloved, but brutal, Othello.
“Desdemona’s knowledge that the love she shares with Othello has gone somehow terribly wrong is written in
her eyes, yet her heart remains steadfast.” ~ R Paul Sardanas
ABOUT THIS SERIES:
This series was born of a series of outtakes i did when trying to get the right facial expressions to overlay with R. Paul Sardanas amazing abstract portraits of Desdemona.
I very much wanted a way to combine mediums, to collaborate on this collection. R. Paul was generous enough to let me use his abstracts paintings as a photographic canvas. I loved the challenge of working in mixed media.
It is because i took so many portraits before i got the right look, that i decided to call the outtakes, “Chasing Desdemona” because that’s what it felt like i was doing with my repeated attempts to create just the right look.
And it was meant to be that way as that ended up being the perfect title for the series, itself. And i was very happy to learn that these extra portraits will be part of the book that is in the works as a follow up to this online presentation!
