“Ritual” is a body of work that explores the intersection of seduction, ritual, and performance. These images explore the connection between mating rituals, sexuality, and power. I have surrounded myself with constructed still life moments. The self-portraits play on the idea of ancient fertility rites and the veiled sexuality of vintage burlesque performers. I am shooting on 4x5 color film to achieve a lush, timeless feeling with these photos. “ - Rowan 2018, Carrie Able Gallery Brooklyn, NY.
