About

This series depicts Morris dancers from Bedfordshire in a 'paradise', painted and assembled by Claridge herself. The photographs explore relations between living tableaux and photography and challenge photography's capacity for authenticity, by making portraits which both reveal and obscure, document and create. The style combines Old Master paintings with theatrical staging and is influenced by portraiture of the 18th century, in composition and in the intensity of the sitters' state. Alongside the photographic series, Claridge will also be exhibiting a video piece that develops the theatrical themes of portraiture.
