Doñagdeo is the avatar for transformation. She possesses the roles of sorcerer and a warrior in one entity. Through these photographs I try to discover her environment and a construct a visual context - Doñagdeo's world.
My photographs are composites and montages. Editing make the image more surreal, by experimenting with the impossible. By repeating Doñagdeo's presence I can create a sense of relationship, movement, or independence from time and place. I seek out Gothic Cathedrals and medieval churches because I like the way the arches scaffold her body and its design. One of my favorite themes to explore with Doñagdeo is the entrance into spiritual consciousness, symbolized by a type of doorway. Perhaps Doñagdeo is a guard, an usher, a greeter, or a judge of who may enter and who may not.
