Exposure № 067: Wrinkles

Artist Sabrina Goucher tells us about her fantastic photography project.

She told us:

These two images are part of an on going experimentation process where I cover any willing model in a mixture of flour and paint. I really like how the mixture cracks when dry, especially the places of the body which move the most, thus creating an older and sometimes (especially in this case) surreal effect. I shot here using a pretty simple set up, off camera flash and a 50mm lens so that I could just about pick out the eyes and surrounding areas, leaving the rest out of focus. I then went on to see how far I could push the processing, and ended up with the second image, which has an altogether different feel. Its almost what I would call daedric… a vision only nightmares could produce.

Exposure № 056: Rabbit, Rabbit, White Rabbit

Says Sabrina Goacher:

“The image is part of a collection called Rabbit, Rabbit, White Rabbit. I wanted to create a dream-like fantasy state when planning this image,bringing it into the realms of desire and fetishism. I also drew inspiration from a  Vinyl by Bear Face: the image was a woman standing with nothing on but a wolfs head and knickers. This image had transfixed me for a long time. upon receipt of the rabbit head I got down to fetishizing a recognizable sex symbol (thinking along the lines of rabbits having lots of young and obviously hugh hefner’s play boy bunny empire) stripping the jane doe model down to nothing but her knickers and the rabbit head I feel that I made a raw fetishised image with a play on getting back to nature.”

We love the creepiness of the image, and are pleasantly reminded of Donnie Darko.
