Project Idea: The Wild
Photography
Project Concept: Create a photo book from a fairy tale world that follows a young woman as she runs away from a terrible arranged marriage into a wilderness of monsters. The monsters take the forms of mermen, vampires, pixies and other creatures as they pull her into a surreal vision and away from her life. The story is a coming of age tale, but also the story of being pulled between the destruction of the soul and destruction of the body.
Needed for project: Space rental, makeup artists, costume design, materials for costumes models, dolls, props.
(Photographed: Liza, the costume designer I’d work with on this project, in a costume she made for The Battle of Blood and Ink.)
