Array of Sea Persons

This selection of photographs, “Array of Sea Persons,” comes from a new series, "Office of the Revels," which I am developing in connection with my interest in visual “cues” that move a narrative forward on stage. Titles for the works are drawn from a description of Queen Elizabeth’s “progresses” in the late 1500s when she traveled around the countryside, and was entertained for example by actors, or “sea persons,” parading waist-deep through a reflecting pool, in full costume. 

Images are available as archival pigment prints, 24 in. x 18 in., editions of 5, printed on Canson Rag Photographique by master printer Jason Burstein of Conveyor Arts.
