30 Day Challenge // Day 25 // Something From Mythology
Though I’m not really a fan of where the story has gone, I’ve always loved the mythology of Doctor Who. Recently the 50th Anniversary depicted a Gallifreyan painting which was a moment in time captured in a picture, literally. So, I was curious about what a Gallifreyan sculpture might look like. I imagined it as a TARDIS in a time where everything is gone and all that’s left of these relics is the box of time they contained and the shell has withered leaving only scrambled, fluctuating moments in time from when it was alive. Almost like it’s dreaming.
St. Lucy, controlled lighting final; march 2014 (katiesivits)
I did not know about Saint Lucy prior to shooting this; during critique my professor thought I was referencing her in this photo and when I asked him what he meant, he explained that Lucy is the Patron Saint of Light. Upon further research, I discovered that in the dark months of the Netherlands, to celebrate Winter Solstice, people would wear crowns with burning candles on them (very similar to what I have on Kimberly’s head) during ceremonies honoring Saint Lucy. It is also coincidental that this be a photographic “representation” of her because without light, photography would not exist. I thought I’d share this story because it made me happy and love this photograph so much more!
