Dolly, more recently known as the 'Amazing Dolly', gives us a little bit of insight into what it takes to be the muse for Artist Jaqueline Barmentloo.
Whilst Jaqueline is a multi disciplined artist working predominatly in the digital realm, her first love is still photography Jaqueline began taking photos with a Yashica 35mm Viewfinder camera that was the designated family print film camera aged 11. She credits both her interpretation of light, and now general inclination to leave her digital SLR on auto pilot, to these formative photographic years. At 15 she inherited her grandfather's darkroom equipment that had been in storage since his death eight years earlier. This is where Jaqueline credits that her journey as an Artist began. She often found herself working late into the night in a heavily plastic lined laundry cum makeshift dark room all in the search of that elusive image.
