I can't believe I haven't posted these yet!! I was browsing through my hard drive and found them again. So these need a little explaining.
For my dark room class this year, we had an assignment called 'Beauty in Destruction' where we physically destroy our film or prints to match our content into one working piece.
I had been toying with idea for while to use Lolitas in my film work. So I got to thinking, Lolitas in themselves are perfect for this assignment. I used the idea of the actual text book definition of a lolita and the fashion/lifestyle of a Lolita. The word and implication can led to tragic, sick twisted things while the fashion and lifestyle is filled with sweet, beautiful, graceful imagery. So thats what I worked with!
The film was scratched with sand paper and then burned. Then I scanned them in and made 3-4 strip prints.
I consider these to be some of my finest work. I love them very much.
