Sophia Lyndis Brandt - Newhaven Beach
Shot at Newhaven Beach on the english coast, this series was a collaboration between the artist and Sophia Lyndis Brandt, the great niece of Bill Brandt, the Austrian photographer, and is a performance understanding of his experience whilst shooting his iconic pictures at Birling Gap., From the journey to the south coast itself, to the taking of the photographs, the images reflect two journeys in fact, of discovery, for the artist and the model. In celebration of this, a book and an instillation of the beach itself is planned.
Originally shot in 2014 for Volt magazine, as part of a monochromatic series entitled ‘In the Service of the Mind’, this image was inspired by Man Ray’s recurring preoccupation with the female form. It is a contemporary re-presentation of one of his Surrealist photographs from 1926, which captured a naked woman lying poised - toes pointed, eyes closed, head tilted back and lips slightly parted - over a curved, wave-like structure erected in his Parisian studio.
