Here’s a detail of the actor playing Hermione, Richard Dempsey, during rehearsals for A Winter’s Tale, directed by my brother Edward Hall for the Propeller company. Computer painting. (Print).
(Print). There’s something very powerful about a face blown up very large, very close up on a film screen. The scale and the closeness makes it extremely intimate. In life we don’t really see anyone that close except for lovers, or our children when they are infants.
I was messing around with old photographs again, trying to see the different effect if I zoomed in like a close-up shot using one portion of eyes and lips.
Then I fractured it, and that expresses my feeling at the time when this photograph was taken, long ago.
