Samadhi, from the Transformation series. Enlightenment, moksha, liberation, freedom. The spirit is free of Maya, the illusion of the separate self.
This metaphoric series was shot in the Royal National Park south of Sydney with a 5x4 camera and special effects all shot in camera. Here I constructed some white cotton on a wire frame that I had a friend pull through the exposure using fishing line and a pole. The background is the sky and the image was shot on the rock ledges close to Little Marley Beach. The result was close to miraculous given the intended subject and there was much jubilation in the darkroom when I pulled the developed film sheets out of the developer.
We print on heavy grade archival 100% cotton rag fine art paper and prints are sent unframed in a cardboard tube.
