Damara

Damara. 2010

Performance. A4 Photographs. Framed

Work from my 1st year of my degree.

The title is based on a song by Patrick Wolf named Damaris. ( see:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damaris_(song) )

The name Damaris appears in the New Testament and is the hellenization of the name Damara. ( see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damaris )

In Celtic mythology , Damara was a fertility goddess associated with the month of May and the Beltaine festival that was historically celebrated on the 1st of  May in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. It was also believed that this goddess ruled over youth, innocence, and the imagination.
