Wordless Wednesday

Meg Cowell’s oddly alluring To the Surface captures some wonderful period dresses as spectral figures floating through darkness.

The artist submerges the feminine garments in water and photographs them against black velvet. Each one resembles a ghostly Ophelia rising from the brook amongst the willows. For Cowell, the journey each gown makes to the water’s surface represents a psychological transformation. The photos are also an exploration of her own femininity.
