Birth of an Image with Herminone wiltshire

The Birth of the Image is a series of photographs that reimagines iconic Judeo-Christian paintings through a feminist lens. The photographic studio becomes a lab in which to test and reposition the female characters in the narratives as central protagonists in their own dramas. Each figure is modelled by a woman whose own professional practice echoes the narrative of the original pictorial trope.
