Rachel does photography and paint. The Jellyfish photos in her Designer Series contributions are multimedia works that combine her fascination with jellyfish and cephalopods with her nighttime photography, and with imagery from the painting techniques she developed with glazes on large canvases.
Of the 4 images repesented in the Designer Series, JellyFish 2 is her favorite, “because it printed well,” and because it best exemplifies the processes and influences that went into these images.
Why jellyfish? On a trip to a public aquarium, Rachel discovered that the settings that work best when photographing the jellyfish tanks were the same settings she uses for her stunning night photos. “It was simply natural to combine the two.”
