Little Eve has not yet mastered language, she doesn't yet walk. But she is fluent in the language of water. Her body still mysteriously remembers her first home in her mother's body.
A custom self-produced cyanotype print based on my photography series "Do you feel like swimming?". The shooting process employed high-speed photography technique to capture the frozen moment. The photo constituted the first layer of the print. The second and third negatives (layers), consisting of graphic art, are a kind of antithesis to the frozen time - they express the perpetual state of motion. The graphic layers were themselves physically manipulated during the exposure of the cyanotype to add an extra dimension of momevent to the final result.
For my daughter, 2020.
