Self-portrait with silver cross, February 2013, London This photograph captures a moment from a performance exploring the mysteries of human emotion. The photograph was taken in a dark studio with one dim light, against a backdrop of distressed dark green and black painted polystyrene. During the performance, Elina moves her head rapidly from side to side, using a cable release to take the image. Her face is hidden by her long hair as it swings back and forth. 1/20 second shutter speed, f/4.8 and ISO200 printed onto matt photographic paper mounted in a traditional wooden frame.
