Cassandra says: Photography is magical. Photographs have the power to capture moments - glimpses of life - and to transform them into dreamlike representations of reality. My body of work is borne out of vintage photographs purchased from antique stores and flea markets. By reclaiming and intuitively marking upon the original photographs, I construct my own magical objects, compositions that blur past memory with organic forms. The resulting work merges design aesthetics with the ephemeral encounters of unknown histories.
