Book of Fears
This project was created during the coronavirus pandemic which has caused significant fear among many. Since I did not have the luxury of shooting on location with models, I chose to use characters found on 19th-century cabinet cards as my models, placing them in fictional settings. The challenge became revitalizing these anonymous historical figures in staged environments that would showcase the desired fear, while at the same time asking the viewer to examine their own anxieties and fears. Select images are available as salt prints or van dyke photographs.
