Woman Crush Wednesday: Angela Bacon-Kidwell
Interview by Yanika Anukulpun
Project: Traveling Dream.
Could you explain more about your Traveling Dream project? How could you get an inspiration from, and why were you interested in creating this project?
Traveling Dream started when I became a mother for the first and only time. I could no longer work in solitude in the studio painting so I took to the road with the baby in the tote and co-created this series. Although planned to some extent, my images often rely on spontaneity and the ability to accept the present moment. My son has taught me this during our years of exploration together. I've tried to learn how to rest while in motion — as an artist and mother. There are the inevitable times of distractions and interruptions, but my goal is to try and stay on course by acknowledging the essence of creation, which to me, is played. Our daily purpose was pure engagement with creativity.
I think your entire color photos that are sepia color, and this color makes your project stands out. Why did you choose this color, what did it mean to you?
My choice of toning was intuitive. I later realized the tone was similar to the color in my own personal dreams.
What camera did you use to capture this photo series? How long had you been working this series?
Canon 5D Mark 5
