The Tarot { 23 images } Created 29 Apr 2012

The depictions within a deck of the Tarot aim to personify archetypal characters and typical scenarios as presented through a series of tableau-esque playing cards. Traditional, they are then used to signify a relation, to provide a link leading to an enhanced awareness of how common (or chance) symbolism can communicate, interact, or serve as a guide to daily decisions.

This body of work seeks to re-envision the imagery and symbolic nature of the Tarot and arrange its individual components within a contemporary setting. In effect, to translate a set of illustrations into a series of modern photographs and rejuvenate an antiquated set of imagery while also adding a sense of realism to an otherwise superstitious practice.
