Description
Nude figure turning slowly in order to produce a mirror image of herself, captured with slow shutter speed and flash. Venue a Greek Orthodox chapel with the painted icons of Mary with baby Jesus in the left panel and the Angel Gabriel in the right panel. I set the model in the middle panel to form a contemporary triptych. The nude model represents a contemporary version of the two Christian scenes - the Annunciation, and Eve in Paradise with Mary confronting Eve in Paradise. The viewer are free to read individual meanings into the traditional iconography.
