Freedom 1. A collaboration with Courtney Sanders.
Courtney ( alwayssometimesanytime )came to me sharing her current obsession with
Jonathan Franzen's latest novel, 'Freedom' Essentially it is a story based around 3 generations within one nuclear family,set in the social-politial landscape of America. Our take on this was Franzen's attitude to contemporary Freedom and what it means to move beyond the confines of this modern technological world we live in. It is an amazing idea and i am very excited to be part of it.
Our Freedom story is part 1 of a series of 6.It is not only an exploration of 'freedom' but also an exploration and portrait of the varied New Zealand landscape and how we respond to it. This project has also touched me on a personal level and has become autobiographic. While shooting I find myself tapping into a very free self and just begin to feel quite unleashed. It’s a very exciting process. Our models kitty and Lili (http://www.redeleven.net.nz/) have encapulated this sprit beautifully.
