Kourtney Roy and Lady Dior | Photographers & Photo projects | Scoop.it

“The Lady Dior series projects a sense of ambiguity and pending calamity. The images are framed in such a way that the viewer can only glimpse at the subjects in a voyeuristic way. I am quite fascinated with staging my own death. By orchestrating and controlling my own suicides I confront directly the primitive and ageless mystery which haunts humanity, sublimating the obsessive fear of the inevitable. As for the Lady Dior bag’s iconic status, it lent itself easily to the idea of a woman obsessed by the idea of keeping her most precious worldly possession with her, even in death.“
