Here we have the unstoppable force that is Seana Italia Redmond [or Seana Stormer to her nearest and dearest.]. Her collection entitles Traces stems from her research which explores capturing knitwear on camera and how photography has the potential to feed into her knitwear.
She has created a book [more to come once I get my hands on it] which she created alongside some graphics students to compliment the collection.
here are some extracts from the book which explain the origins of collection:
'The photography has been a tool to capture the elusive movement and texture of my knitwear; the capture of these garments means they are precious frozen frames of moments in time which could otherwise have been lost in the blink of an eye.'
'This constant pendulum motion between the knitwear and photographs allows both disciplines to feed off each other: effectively one cannot succeed without the other.'
'The knitwear is therefore driving a mood and tempo rather than merely being a static collection that is captured and presented through a photographic record.'
