Spirits Speak: A Celebration of African Masks
Masks are still in common use and have a strong role in the traditional culture such as those in African countries. The specific implications associated to each masks vary widely from culture and town to town but many traits are common to most African cultures. These, include a spiritual and religious meaning being used in many ceremonies involving dances and social events. These masks come in many different colours, such as red, black, orange, and brown and I own a large number of mask and artifacts, e.g., sculptures, cloth, pots, fans, etc. I wish to work with a female model who wishes to explore being photographed wearing these masks and associated decorations and ritual objects. A willingness to be painted and cover with white clay is required.
N.B. I am now oil painting until next April, but if you are still interested we can discuss more and arrange a shoot next year. Thank You.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesI am flexible in timings but suggest June/July onward.
N.B. I live outside Brighton near the sea-side.
