I'm the lady of the Manor! Sarahphotogirl adourns the walls of Castle Howard...
Yesterday five BRAND NEW photographs left Scarborough in the back of a rent-a-van. They were so new the camera didn't know they'd been taken yet.
I wept as the van turned the corner and headed off into the awaiting sea-fret. It was like sending your kids to school for the first time (not that I'd know as rats don't go to school) but I'm sure it felt the same much the same - tears of joy after six weeks of hard work resulting in having no life what-so-ever.
These images, part of the Her Dark Materials series are self portraits heavily influenced by fairytales and literature. They form part of the Picture Book Exhibition at Castle Howard and are displayed along side the wonderful costumes designed for me by the very talented students at Yorkshire Coast College.
This exhiition runs until September. Along side this I am soon to return to The Living Room in York. This opens to the public on Friday 31st July and around twenty images will be on dispay. If you would like to be on the guestlist for the preview night please email firstname.lastname@example.org
See you there!
