This is what happens when I'm bored....

I don't consider these to be "real" pictures. My lightbox is too small for this, so you can see the darker edges. I certainly have enough lingerie to do a whole set, and now I have an excuse to get a better lightbox...

But yeah, these were just test shots. Kinda like the dolls--for fun, but I want to see where it goes.

(remember: TEST shots, aka NOT THAT GOOD)

These remind me a bit of Jill Weinstock's work. Hers are dresses submerged in rubbery latex type stuff, and aren't anything like photos, but the idea of crumpling up clothing and preserving it connects the two concepts.

I think I like the photos better, because the rubbery stuff is pretty nasty.

so, worth pursuing? i have lots of lingerie i could play with (bras, panties, nighties, thigh-highs....approximately 40-60 pieces, at least), but it seems a bit done or derivative. i don't think i've seen this exact combination. i've seen solarized prints of panties (amy yang), and i've seen flowers in water so they have that white glow and deeply saturated colors (andrzej pluta), but not this.

i think it might make a difference if i made it clear i didn't have any "artistic motive"--i don't, and wouldn't, take these seriously.

Sam,

Don't forget the recent show at Conner Contemporary of Dean Kessman's scans of plastic bags. Different subject and technique but very similar outcome.

You can see some images here if you scroll down: http://thinkingaboutart.blogs.com/art/2006/01/dupont_circle_g.html

I think the concept could work if you have the subject wearing it but sitting on the same light source and maybe throwing xtra light on it? Maybe/maybe not...

Neat pictures! If you had not told me the lingerie were laying on the lightbox, I imagined the photos being taken while the lingerie was tossed into the air.
