I vividly remember going on an outing with my mother to Barneys New York and falling in love with Carter Kustera's silhouette artwork that was on display. Since then I've grown really fond of silhouettes and wanted to find a way to incorporate them into photography. I decided to create a silhouette stencil and print images through it in the dark room. First I made a simple black print. Then I filled the silhouette with an image of my paper dress and another of a palm tree. I really enjoyed using this technique and am looking forward to experimenting with it more in the future!
