The symbolism between the moon and women inspired Merry.
She studied the science and mythology associated with the moon as a powerful female counterpart of the sun. In 1992, she taught an interdisciplinary course on the moon's facts vs. fictions. Four faculty members shared their respective disciplines in science, religion, art and literature to help generate new ideas for all members of the class. Merry produced 28 new, complex photographs for the final project.
Reminder...All of the photographs on this website are produced from film and a darkroom.
