Behind the Mask

Another image with the messy wig. This image was taken a month ago with the previous image. Sometimes these take some time to finish. White mask is one of the first masks I have bought for photography and the frame was a big mirror that I photographed last summer for cases like this.


I thought that I make my version of an angel and devil on my shoulders idea. This goes also to my ongoing mutations series. I found the wings from my old photos, so I just added those to the image with some shadows. I had horns that should stay on your head with the glue. Well that glue was just rubbish so I photographed the horns in the same light and added it later in photoshop.

Back home from the Fotofinlandia trip to Helsinki (and Tampere). I didn’t have a budget to make prints that I wanted so I had to settle to normal prints. I thought I’ll highlight the simple prints by hanging them on the wall as plain prints. First I was going to use magnets but I changed the hang at the last moment when I saw Tiina Haring‘s exhibition at VB. I used nails and metal clips for the photos. For the story I used magnets on top of screws under the print. Then I placed bolt tops (which were cut off from short bolts) on top of the paper. They clicked to the magnets and kept the print in place and gave nice industrial look to it. If photos were glued to a  foam board it might work quite nicely for photos too, but that’s too late for this exhibition.
