Broadly inspired by the myth of Galatea – a sculpture brought to life by her creator, Pygmalion.
My initial project objective was to try and evoke the mood of the Impressionist painters. I couldn’t attempt that without addressing Degas’ ballerinas. But, as with the way with these things, shooting with different models took that plan in a lot of new directions …
The original idea for the ‘Kinomorphic’ project – I wanted to recreate the feel of Impressionist art, using long exposures / motion blur and selective focus.
