Dianne and Kathryn Souphandavong: In the beginning

Artist/photographer Dianne Souphandavong and poet Kathryn Souphandavong combined talents on their first collaboration, In the beginning.

The book includes sunset photographs abstracted in an atmospheric manner. Many spectres, figures and ghosts appear naturally in the photos. The series dwells within a particular genre of the ‘fantastic’. The images were obtained from two separate visits to Darwin by Dianne to experiment with this technique.

Throughout the several drafts undertaken for “In The Beginning”,  it was interesting to see how the interpretation of the images could change the focus of the text.  The collaboration was certainly a equally shared project, producing some long odd discussion on everything from image placement to font types and ghostly spectres… An enjoyable project that allowed photographer and writer to bond.

Bio statements:

Dianne Souphandavong is an artist/photographer working in a variety of media. She is currently studying at Polytechnic West to obtain the Advanced Diploma of Environmental Art. She has been pursuing photography for many years experimenting with different ways of presenting the captured images. Images for this book have been awarded highly commended at exhibition, leased by the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council for display on their premises and a series of 15 images was a finalist entry in the national photography competition, The Shutterbug Awards.

Kathryn Souphandavong is a newly emerging poet who recently had two submissions to Poetry.com included in their Anthologies.

I have always been fascinated by words: How a well-worded phrase can mean only one thing, or can be made to mean many. My favourite form is poetry, delving into a concept or a moment and exploring all its possibilities.
