I’m currently working on a photography project that is totally different from my normal night and architectural images. It is based on a kimono that originally belonged to my great grandmother, and was eventually given to me by my grandmother, Jeanne Johnstone Wilson. The kimono is from China (circa 1910/20s – possibly earlier) and is made from raw silk and I’ve had it made into a dress, top and some lovely wall pictures. But the fabric is so delicate and when my Grandmother passed away in 2012, I wanted to ensure that the fabric and its history was preserved.
Hence Project Jeanne! I am in the testing phases of the project but below are a couple of images to show what I am up to.
