Tim D
Chlöe, 2020
Hand printed on Ilford Multigrade De Luxe photographic Paper, framed. 200 x 250 mm

Of the work the artist writes: During lock down I read Marti Friedlander’s autobiography, I was inspired by her work documenting politicians early in their careers and how they became important pictures over time. It got me thinking about Chlöe, this is a milestone moment in her life and career and capturing it would be something special. It also got me thinking of her story’s narrative. I believe if she had been male she would have been championed for ambition and drive but instead based on gender she was down played for her age and so called lack of life experience. That is bullshit and I wanted to make that statement with this artwork and photograph. I am grateful there are people like Chlöe in this world breaking the moulds of convention and opening the doors for others to follow. Specialist valuation NZ$450.00
