Slade Degree Show: Lesbian Love Story

'Lesbian Love Story' use the cyanotype to investigate ideas of lesbian representation, imagery and visibility. Using the sun as exposure and the chemicals as a method of capturing moments of time as changes in nuances of blue, lesbian bodies transforms into abstract body parts conveying feelings instead of specific identities or biological bodies.

Taking inspiration from early lesbian photography like Tee Corinne and Joan Biren, Lovers at Hampstead Heath is a portrait of lesbian lovers, their bodies in different  moments in time; an embrace, a kiss, resting next to each other, or having sex, captured in public in a park historically well-known as a place for lesbian and gay cruising.

“It's hot love and body outlines bathed in shady fresh breeze from an open window”
(Shell Like, 2018).
