‘Sleeping Beauty’ | explores the elusive and uncomfortable feelings of powerlessness. To be accepted we must make ourselves small.  I am interested in the feelings we hide that stop us from standing and speaking up. Positioned in the grass, faces near the ground, the young women and girls in this series lie in a vulnerable position, at the same time aware. Throughout my work I explore the role of power and trust on both sides of the camera, identifying with the fear, pride, reticence and strength of the models, that exists in all of us. All works in this series are 30 x 30” archival pigment prints, from scanned medium format negatives. All images were made in www.lydiapanas.com
