Visual artist Sonia Srebric’s latest project is inspired by historical costumes and fancy dress. Taking photographs of costumes, Sonia reworks them and prints them on Acetate, producing a ghostly vintage negative effect.
Based in Worthing, Sonia takes inspiration from the history of interesting people who have lived locally, particularly enjoying visiting the expansive costume collection at Worthing Museum and thinking about the people who would have worn them. She believes that modern images of vintage costumes could easily appear to have been taken centuries ago, as fashion transcends generations.
‘Memories’ is a photographic exhibition that attempts to preserve and recapture moments in time, blurring the lines between 1919 and 2019.
