    Rebecca Reeve: Marjory’s World

Strange windows into the wilderness from photographer Rebecca Reeve

Posted by James Cartwright,

Hailing from London but now residing in Brooklyn, Rebecca Reeve is a photographer dealing predominantly in surreal narratives and unsettling landscapes. Her photographic series tell eerie stories of faceless characters leading their lives in midnight darkness and place Dutch death rituals within the lush environments of Florida’s Everglades. Marjory’s World places a selection of scavenged curtains across the vistas of the Florida countryside, evoking a 19th Century Dutch custom of covering mirrors, portraits and landscape paintings with cloth at the wake of deceased family members to aid their passing into the afterlife. In doing so Rebecca transforms these fertile grounds into memento moris that stay with you long after viewing.
