Florence gracefully suspends herself into the still water to enjoy a moment of serentiy. The rich blue and purple colors surround her and add to her peaceful retreat from reality. The focus of Anna Sweet’s current series of work is women, immersed in water, at the "decisive moment" of their expression (to use the words of Cartier-Bresson). Sweet manipulates the images she creates by printing them on aluminum then encasing them in semi-precious materials including crystal, metal pigments, minerals, and glass. Each piece is finished with a UV resin that protects and preserves the underlying photographic print. The encased materials and photographic image seemingly coalesce into a stunning, three-dimensional representation of the subjects. The subjects in this series become ethereal displays of female beauty.
