Prologue to a Myth (2018 – 2020) IV

Mar 23, 2020 - Louis Heilbronn

The photographs using actors and models combine themes of invented and well known stories and fairytales. As part of my process, I wrote a series of one act plays that the body of work illustrates. I wanted to create a theatrical world that was both epic and transparent. Working with different types of images and tones helped me create the imbalance that I was striving for. As one experience’s the theater, I wanted the viewer to be drawn in and alienated at the same time.
