Desdemona - The Promise - SP by Jaeda DeWalt

Desdemona - The Promise - SP by 

This is about the beautiful promise pledged to Othello within the holy matrimony of marriage. A promise she kept to the tragic end.

This series was born of a series of outtakes i did when trying to get the right facial expressions to overlay with R Paul Sardanas amazing abstract portraits of Desdemona.

I very much wanted a way to combine mediums, to collaborate on this collection. R. Paul was generous enough to let me use his abstracts paintings as a photographic canvas. I loved the challenge of working in mixed media.

It is because i took so many portraits before i got the right look, that i decided to call the outtakes, “Chasing Desdemona” because that’s what it felt like i was doing with my repeated attempts to create just the right look.

And it was meant to be that way as that ended up being the perfect title for the series, itself. And i was very happy to learn that these extra portraits will be part of the book that is in the works as a follow up to this online presentation!

I’m a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my
internal landscapes, wherein, i explore; survivor issues, spirituality and sexuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share.
