Siobhan Raw – Spirit
Siobhan has recently graduated from UWE:Bristol, her current project: ‘Spirit’ was shown as part of PITCH Exhibition in London a few weeks ago. These large prints left a lasting impression on many of the visitor to the show [Vignette feature], not just because of their size but also the projects carefully considered context.
‘As homage to one of her favourite books, Siobhan has re-created a yearbook entitled ‘Spirit’. Using large format photography, the images portray the tension between 1950s American suburbia and the imminent loss of adolescence spoke of in the novel. The yearbook photographs act as a preservation of the fictionally styled characters, embalmed eternally in the emulsion of the negative.’
