You all know that I love ending the month with something very special. Along this year, the monthly golden brooch will be my project “12 Baroque Still Even captions in 12 months”.
In my previous post about this project I told you how my inspiration came from the sort of painting called “vanity”, where luxurious scens of fruits and flowers get mixed with books, jars, coins, jewelry, paintings or musican and scientific instruments. All of them are objects that will be accompanied by pieces with symbolic meanings.
Each photography is unique and has been developed with a complicated and precise process.
February is the month of the water, the purification of the souls and the month of Neptune (Roman god). It’s also the month of the amethysts.
After many evenings studying about the meanings of those objects, looking them up in art books and the Internet, and of course, after having some inspiring ideas I wrote down in that small notebook MapyDh gave me one year ago, the photograph “Neptunus deus Maris” was born.
I hope you like it…
