New Moon, Full Moon calendar for 2024 featuring an image from Amanda Rowan's Ritual photographic series. The collectible lunar calendar is available as part of a series of photography exhibited in conjunction with the West Coast premier of her film Place Setting.
Surrounding herself with constructed still life moments, Rowan's self-portraits play on the idea of ancient fertility rites and harken the veiled eroticism of vintage burlesque performers. This project explores the connection between mating rituals, sexuality, and power within the context of domestic relationships. The images were shot on 4x5 color film to achieve a lush, timeless feeling.
