Joy Gregory’s artistic practice is concerned with notions of identity and gender, often resulting in projects that reference 19th century photographic techniques.
In this series of nine self-portraits, Joy Gregory depicts fragments of her upper body, face and hands, playfully moving in and out of the frame. Through close-up confrontation with the photographic lens, she investigates concepts of beauty, femininity and politics associated with the portrayal of identity. The artist applied a special photographic technique to these black and white portraits in order to achieve ‘clear whites, velvety matt blacks and pink/brown colour in the mid-skin tones’.
At the time that these photographs were made, images of women from culturally diverse backgrounds were largely absent from lifestyle magazines, advertising campaigns and newspapers. The work directly addresses issues of absence, visibility and self-representation within society. (via Autograph ABP)

the-overlook-hotel:

Frame from an unused take from The Shining. This alternate take of Wendy climbing the stairs of the Staff Wing was used in an American television commercial advertising The Shining upon its initial release.

The shot is interesting in that it features Wendy’s shadow with an outstretched, claw-like hand pose that is reminiscent of a similar shot in F.W. Murnau’s classic 1922 horror film, Nosferatu.

Stanley Kubrick spoke about how he deliberately wanted to avoid the iconography of traditional gothic horror film in his design of the Overlook Hotel sets. Yet, during the climax of The Shining, he seems to readily embrace classic horror film images in shots like this as well as the later scene where Wendy discovers the cobwebbed skeletons in the hotel lobby.
