Daphne by John Slaby
Archival Photographic Print (without mat)
17 x 8.5
One of the models I worked with had a magnificent tattoo on her side (this has since changed). My usual dark background was insufficient for this piece, so I placed her in front of a bright landscape by Harold Joiner my colleague here at the gallery. It was only after its completion that I realized the connection to the mythical Daphne who turner herself into a tree to avoid the unwanted amorous advances of Apollo.
