Double Take Horror series
Photographic series retracing mythologies
Double Take re-examines popular culture icons by way of fictitious horror characters. These ambivalent portraits explore the dimensions of the traditionally vilified characters as well as the models who depict them.Muted colours and demure poses heighten their ambiguity, while the model’s original shadow contrasts the person we see once more.
Double Take catches Medusa of Greek mythology, Nosferatu one of the earliest film vampires, Regan the little girl from The Exorcist and Dr.Jekyll/Mr. Hyde the mad scientist with a split personality in near tranquil moments when they are neither evil nor good, nor enraged or peaceful.
