Last Tuesday George and I took a ride over to Lyme and Old Lyme
across the Connecticut River. We went and had a bit to eat at
It was late when we got to the Museum so we only walked around to see the gardens which I’ll show you
more of on another post.
I thought you might like to see the Bramble
that was constructed in 2009.
I photographed the sign incase you were interested in reading about it,
and in case I couldn’t remember what I read.
The lighting isn’t that great.
I did photograph it last year and for some reason it doesn’t
read like it does in real life.
It’s really a sight.
I local photographer used the Bramble as a back drop for her subjects.
Not this one but I thought you’d like to see it.
Adrien Broom is a self-taught photographer with a eye for the bizarre and beautiful. Her images tell stories, exploring conversations and creating worlds that don't quite exist in the usual way.
Adrien Broom will dress a model or child in costume or elaborate finery, sometimes including live or taxidermy animals she will create a setting of natural beauty in exaggerated form. The word magic does come to mind when you stand before her photographs, as she is able to twist and turn the picture plane to phantasmagoria, she names this series 'Wonder'.
In 'Movement' the photographs of woman in rich red and bilious fabric appear to be floating angels, reminiscent of Florentine Art and in a more playful series 'Frame of Mind' miniature settings with figures are photographed in what appears to be a real world. w - Magazine recently named her up and coming photographer to look out for.
Opening October 16th 6-8pm
to November 14th
10 Lyme Street Old Lyme Ct.
