Working with a fashion designer for an exhibition, I took photographs of a dress he designed. I used 32mm film for the project.
Stephen Quatember for Number 3
Stephen Quatember designed a dress for a Cape Town design event Number 3, curated by Liam Mooney. Four photographers were tasked with capturing images of the same garment in different ways. Without experience in film photography, I took pictures of my cousin wearing the dress at work. I wanted the dress to be what it was and not to play it up in any way.
I used only one colour film, but at the time prefered the overall feel of black and white.
Looking back, I like the light in the colour images.
This is the image I finally chose and editted to be on display.
