Fourth-year graduating photographers Showcase 'Mango.'

at the Alberta University of the Arts Main Mall.


Within my practice, I’ve recently been researching mythological stories, mainly surrounding gods and goddesses from Greek, Norse and Roman mythology. Within this piece, I wanted to capture Pomona, the Roman Goddess of Tree Fruit, Gardens and Orchards; she doesn’t have a Greek counterpart but is associated with Demeter, the Greek goddess of agriculture. Pomona protects fruit trees and cares for their cultivation. I wanted to capture the photograph and turn it into a painterly image within photoshop with lighting that you’d see in paintings from the Renaissance or Baroque periods.  Within this mango exhibition, I intended to stick to my creative roots in fantasy photography while also experimenting with nude photographs for the first time.
