Senta Simond – Rayon Vert
Diploma project by Senta Simond
“The Rayon Vert” project takes its title from the optical phenomenon and the 1986 Eric Rohmer film, both of which are reflected in the project approach to portraiture. The work can be seen as a continuation of the tradition focussing on the relationship between artist and model. The images feature a circle of acquaintances and respond to the existing, and too often clichéd, representation of femininity. The images are based on fact and are devoid of narrative and of a patriarchal vision of beauty. The project is presented as both a series of exhibited prints and a book.
