The Lily Holds Firm 

and Other Tales


A collaborative jewellery | photography project by 

Anastasia Young and Lindsay Cameron

Preoccupied by symbolism and stories, Anastasia Young and Lindsay Cameron have collaborated to create a set of rich, lucid photographs charged with layers of meaning.

Taking inspiration from Nineteenth Century engraved mourning cards, the pictorial content of these images has been reinterpreted using a combination of handmade and found objects to create dioramas which capture narrative fixed points in an infinite, stormy landscape of the subconscious. 

The nature of the symbolic objects invariably conveys significance and lends the objects to narrative exploration; there has been a deliberate use of altered scales, perspective and substitution of emblems within the photographs to draw the viewer in and create a tension between the objects, their meaning and their implied relationships.
