The painting which inspired this project is titled Massacre of the Innocents of Bethlehem (1611-1612). I find the energy of the painting so captivating. I was drawn to movement created by the vast amount of silk material draped over the naked and suffering subjects. It really brings this epic scene to life. The dark and evil story of the massacre of children really struck me, and so I wanted to curate epic scenes which tell the opposite story. By using light, a church building, vivid materials, models of all different ethnicities, and placing symbolism throughout the individual photographs, I created divine scenes which I hope bring, hope, life, purity and peace to the audience.
