Ann Turley – Photoshoot
My Merry Automobile
I struggled with our theme, thinking I didn’t quite understand what was expected of me. How is “Photo Shoot” interpreted? A collection of photos of the same item or subject seemed to fit the bill, so I scrolled through my camera until I came across a set of pictures I had taken at an antique car museum. Composed from many angles, I was sure my collection would work. This particular vehicle is from the 1940’s. I loved the shade of green (original paint job) and tried to come as close as possible. I used commercial cottons, hand-dyes and a glimmery shimmery novelty fabric. The wide white binding is to remind you of how photographs were once printed.
