Theses images evolved out of a narrative I have had in the back of my mind for sometime. Or maybe the narrative evolved from them? In any case, these are inhabitants of a fantasy world I am developing. Each one its own character with its own back story and purpose. When embarking on this project, I created a series of masks, and helmets. I then photographed people wearing them in the studio, and in different outdoor locations. The result was an exciting ride through my imagination. I tried to think – where would this creature live? What would it do? What is its purpose? I’m still trying to answer some of these questions. What started out as a project to juxtapose the bizarre look of the masks with the beauty of the human form, has evolved into a story that I am not done telling.
