Modelling done by (Reem) Mrinmoyee Ghose

about work

Through creating attire and using a stand-in object in her models hands Pollock responded through portraiture to Romina Ressia’s “The Age of Decadence” series. She directed her model (Reem) Mrinmoyee Ghose to pose in a more assertive manner getting her to play with the object in a variety of ways. The lighting created harsh shadows to play on power dynamics. She used a singular frontal light off to one side and a low leveled back-light to get the desired effect.
