Week 5 - Vanishing - rowandevoe & the melody censor

L: the melody censor
R: rowandevoe

tmc: I was really excited to do a project with Merle, since doing tributes of some of her work earlier this year. We started discussing what formate etc to work in, but we never really came to any conclusions, Both of us often work in colour and square format, so it all worked out in the end.

As soon as I saw the theme vanishing, the idea of white face makeup and a white backdrop came to mind...something of a vanishing into nothingness. Her images are a statement, not about her vanishing, but the vanishing of the green environment. I'm so glad that I was able to make such a plain concept work with Merle's rich, colrful and textural botanical images.


  1. P.S. I think you mixed up the right and left artists. Other way around. :) Haha.

  2. hee hee! Thanks Wallflower...I think it's too late for me to be doing anything important...I'll fix it right away!

  3. That is stunning girls ! So beautiful :)

  4. it was such fun to work with you tmc! i love the way you imagination works! it always takes my breath away. i wish i could take photographs like you and do photographs that looked like you as a tribute! you are way too talented though-i just don't have those skills-i am a "jump into the photo and see what happens" kind of photographer while you can plan, create and excute these amazing ideas. it is mind boggling to me!

    thanks brady!

    thanks susan!

  5. If only you knew the truth of how I take my photos!! There is so much more "jumping into the photo to see what happens" than there is planning! It was a joy to work with you my dear!
