A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
“I was inspired by insect queens for this collection. To portray an array of characters, I used a new technique that I developed to create shapes and texture in the hair. I used juxtaposing forms and quirky dimensions to create this effect, and referenced historical and modern architecture to create the bold structures. I worked closely with the photographer, stylist and make-up artist to bring my vision to life.”
