Taken from a series of self portraits which tell the story of the ghost of Camila O’Gorman.
Camila was a socialite in 19th century Argentina. She was executed over a scandal involving her relationship with a Roman Catholic priest. She was only 20 years old and eight months pregnant when she her lover faced a firing squad.
Sharing the same surname as Camila and that of Irish ancestry, I encountered the tragic story of Camila whilst living in Buenos Aires.
Hearing rumours of the ghost of Camila which inhabited a house in Tigre in the province of Buenos Aires where Camila's brother once lived, I gained access to the home.
I spent weeks here interpreting Camila's final days through a series of atmospheric and emotive self portraits.
Due to the movement and and use of natural light and shadows, the resulting images have an intriguing painterly quality them along with telling a very fascinating story!
