Dedographia #005 , 2018

NOT REPOST WITHOUT PERMISSION
Dedographia is a project inspired by the female portraits created by Amedeo Modigliani between 1916 and 1920, the year of his death. Known among his friend as Dedo or Modì, he was one of the artists that revolutionized the ways of interpreting female portraits.
Almost a century later, the author tries an experiment by attempting to reproduce the renowned faces with elongated necks with a photographic language to rewrite an artistic vision with a contemporary take.
With the support of digital technology, the captured figures reinterpret a model of extraordinary beauty, moving away from reality in order to obtain the same surreal dimensions that Modigliani attributed to his subjects in his paintings.
Analogously to the great artist’s productions, the photographer creates prints in the same format of the paintings created decades ago, still exhibited the most important museums in the world.
The criterium of similarity and affinity with the main subjects in the artwork, is the premise for selecting the models portrayed, of which some of the proportions were modified through an editing technique. The editing becomes the functional characteristic of the artwork, with the goal of contextualizing the images in the artist’s dimension to which the photographer is inspired by. The photographer seeks to glorify the feminine ideal in its uniqueness, preserving the traits that make up the human figure.
The series, started in 2018, is currently being created and will include 10 portraits that will reinterpret the work of one of the greatest art masters using contemporary photography.

mini Winter Sessions:
If you're after a small collection of emotive, love-soaked photos to update your family album or put some framed prints on the wall, this is the session for you. Put on a chunky knit, your favourite boots, grab a cosy blanket and let's meet to capture you all together. Winter light is soft and subtle, and the cooler temperatures are perfect for snuggling one another. In Sydney, we're blessed with beautiful sunny winter days which are ideal for spending an afternoon with one another as the sun starts to fade and be home before dark (or you can make an evening of it and pick-up dinner on the way home #mumhack ). More details about the mini Winter Sessions are over on the blog.

What will you do today to get out of your own comfort zone? 🏔 ••••
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately! It’s so easy to play it safe in life and I know that I am 100% guilty of doing this: doing things I know I’m already good at; accepting the way things are if they’re comfortable even if I’m not happy; and letting opportunities come to me, rather than seeking them out.
These past few months I’ve been really working hard on getting out of this comfort zone by moving to a new place where we don’t know anyone or anything; asking for more money at work; applying for jobs I know I might not get; sharing more of our photography even though it’s special to me and I don’t know how it will be received; starting a business even though taxes do my head in; and reaching out to new friends instead of just keeping my head down in the corner and hoping no one talks to me 😂
