« Yes, I wanted to make the photographs more muted. Usually erotic or pornographic images are quite ostentatious, they don’t fail to attract attention and demand a response. I was interested in quieting them down, concentrating them, making the viewer pay attention to the whole of the image. Most of the model slips away, but what remains in the image become more captivating. The viewer’s gaze is deflected and redirected.
I was interested in using the drape or curtain as a barrier between the public and the private. Usually pin-up images are intimate images intended for public consumption. Digitally putting the curtain in front of the model reinstates the privacy of the model, yet of course re-exposes (some of her) for public consumption yet again. » (Eva Stenram)
