Encre Noire et Blanche.
Blanche and I had just met when we decided to work together on the series. Retrospectively, it is obvious that we used the project to study one another but ultimately learned about ourselves.
The work captured Blanche’s full range of emotions as she was subjecting herself to my directions. Vulnerable, self conscious, conflicted, submissive, empowered, her body and mind pushed to their limits.
The exploration lasted for months after the shoot, where painting and photography merged as one.
In the end the process transcended the intent and over 40 pieces were created.
