The Whole Story


This is my grandmother's flapper dress from 1927. Many years before she died, she gave it to me along with her gorgeous wedding dress. I have always loved it, and it makes me feel close to my grandmother. It is pink and beige with black and white beads. A real stunner of a dress; I can only imagine how beautiful my grandmother looked. I love to put it on and spin around--it also makes me feel like I can connect with a time in my grandmother's life that was even before the birth of my mother. I don't wear the dress much anymore--the material is so fine and it is beginning to deteriorate, but I love to just look at it!  

Workflow - I don't entirely remember the process of editing this shot, but I know I used Snapseed and Scratchcam.

Caroline MacMoran - I live in Philadelphia, PA with my partner and our 11 year old son. I am a nurse and a psychotherapist and work in full time private practice with my 3 colleagues at The Brandywine Center in Wilmington, DE. I have always been interested in art and photography, and particularly love iPhoneography for its ease and the potential to create while holding it in the palm of your hand. I am very interested in self-portraiture and the way it helps me understand myself and my place in this world, and have been taking the year-long NowYou workshops led by Meredith Winn (@camerashymomma) and Kristin Zecchinelli (@mainemomma). I am also continually inspired by Karen Divine and her incredible art, and recently participated in a 5-day workshop she led in Santa Fe.
