Blodeuwedd: The Flower Woman(Middle Welsh composite name from blodeu ’flowers, blossoms’ + gwedd ’face, aspect, appearance’: “flower face”), is the wife of Lleu Llaw Gyffes in Welsh mythology, made from the flowers of broom, meadowsweet and the oak by the magicians Math and Gwydion, and is a central figure in the fourth branch of the Mabinogi.

Just the Two of Us
Who hasn’t had the desire just to become someone else for a while? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else. For this photo series I visited owners of elaborate costumes in their own homes. As a matter of fact, ‘just the two of us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.
