Last Supper, 2018

While preparing to shoot this series, I looked for art historical references in painting. The images I found told biblical or mythological tales of women that were forbidden to eat fruit and the consequences they faced after they did. The biblical Eve and the mythological Persephone were cast out of their paradises for having a bite of the forbidden fruit.  


For me, girls with fruit is a new take on the topic of the power of women. In the stories I want to tell women are not afraid to seek knowledge and power for themselves. 


These images are photographed digitally in front of a darkly colored backdrop. This project is also my first study of the power of color. Each girl is featured in front of a complementary color in hopes that their expressions will be highlighted. Each girl is a friend of mine and they chose which fruit to eat for their portrait.
