"LOA" is from the 9th annual summer photo shoot 2017 with my niece, Carly. We have been meeting annually since 2009 to collaborate on a visual diary of personal folklore.
This time, the project was designed around an idea she wanted to explore. For the first time since we began, Carly brought the concept and backbone to the shoot and together we put together a new persona for her inspired by Haitian voodoo, Mexican ritual and the brooding angst and dark fascinations of a teenager coming of age.
The result is our interpretation of the LOA who are the spirits or intermediaries of the higher gods in Haitian and Creole voodoo. I find the character quite appropriate for a coming of age teen since each spirit is know for their particular and distinct personalities and mischievous ways.
This print of "LOA" is a color pigment print on beautiful Hahnemüle 305 gsm Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper.
The print is signed and comes mounted in a Crescent® WHITE CORE, acid-free smooth white board.The mat is beveled cut and is 4-ply.
The mat is hinged to a white board backer with museum fabric tape.

To make framing simple and cost effective for the collector, the mat board is cut to fit in most standard 8x8 frames.
