Dreams of Stardom : Tara

Posted by Phil Morris (Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada) on 28 October 2015 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I really never knew Tara's dreams at all. I took this picture when we were on a break
and as she picked up a book, I thought it worked well, so I took the shot. In this shot
she wore my mother's veiled hat, which I don't remember my mother ever wearing,
so it may have been somewhat out of style when I was a kid. I always told most of
my sitters to bring a camisole for any special pictures we might do. Sometimes even
that disappeared. The picture is colored black and white with some special effects.
She was sitting on my theatre seats which everyone sat on, while waiting for special
lighting. The strong backlight came from the sun I believe coming from the sunporch.
Tara and I worked well because we both spoke little, and the work and time vanished.
It was all too brief, and she became one of my favourite sitters in my lifetime...

Radiant shot and beautiful story, Phil. I love the way your image captures the sense of dreams and aspirations - something we all cherish in one way or another.
