Prom Gown #3. This image is printed in 14", 20", 28" and 50" sizes. The medium is photomontage printed on cotton rag paper with archival inks. I shot the elements of this image on 6x4.5 film with a Mamiya camera, scanning the film and combining the shots or elements in Photoshop. The background was taken in the Yellowstone Park and the girl was photographed in my back yard. I had the idea of an Indian burial and wanted to recreate that idea with a contemporary image.
