“Repose” ©2020 Karen Johnson All Rights Reserved

I photographed this room at Tweksbury State Hospital and had the idea while I was photographing it that I would put someone or something in it. The bather is from the painting “Birth of Venus” by Alexandre Cabanel which is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is part of the “Open Access” program.

I added a few things in…the faucets and bubbles I purchased from ItKuPiLLi Imagenarium. I resized and duplicated these items in order to place them exactly where I wanted them to go. My goal was to create very surreal photograph and found that when I made it black and white it really took on that quality.
