Nikon D610 + Sigma 105mm Lens
Taken as part of a series exploring some of the most powerful women of the past, juxtaposed against gender equality in the modern day work place. This image references the portrait of Queen Elizabeth 1st by an unknown English artist dating back to approximately 1600. The image took 4 sittings to complete and contains used car parts as accessories. In the image theTudor Crown is replaced by a modified clutch cover, the Sceptre a drill bit and the orb by a clutch plate. There is also nod to the Tudor roses embroidered onto Elizabeths coronation robe. The sitter is Samantha, a talented fellow student photographer who I felt fitted the role of Elizabeth 1 perfectly. I am fascinated by paintings and photographs that contain clues or a narrative. Something that draws you further into the image. I enjoy taking the time to add these subtleties into many of the images I create.
