Projects Women I've Shot

A (mini) body of work
Daughter of Oceanum, Diani Beach, Kenya

I travelled to Diani Beach, an hour South of Mombasa, Kenya in December 2018 for a mini-sabbatical and break with multiple cameras. Of course.

I shot this series of water portraits of a beautiful artist friend Barbara Wildenboer who was at the time working on a body of work strongly influenced by Greek mythology.

I shot the whole series on a Holga camera on analogue/ medium format roll film. A favourite creative medium to work with.

I shot two projects, this one, and this one- link here and started a new project which I’m yet to continue (it’ll eventually and organically happen I think).

From Daughter of Oceanus all but one are double exposures and shot while I was chest deep in the 23 degree water. It was a stunning experience, the moon was already high and it was full.
