I shot this series on Portra 100 film, on a 120mm Mamiya film camera, adding a dreamy realism to the photographs. Due to the heavy weight of the camera I set up a tripod to reduce any shaking. These images were inspired by the mystical portrayal of women within Greek mythology and paintings. The subject’s own sense of divine femininity is expressed by her strong, yet graceful, Goddess-like poses. The soft quality of the film produced a painterly essence, similar to the delicate surface of skin achieved by oil paints.
