Here Comes The Bride And Other Nightmares

$60.00

A special first edition of Here Comes the Bride and Other Nightmares, a collection of provocative, emotional and dream-like photographic images compiled from the works of artist Freyda Miller, will be released on September 1, 2014. Each book in this exclusive hardbound publication is elegantly wrapped in black fabric and printed on acid-free paper. Here Comes the Bride and Other Nightmares uses images juxtaposed with quotes from historical and literary figures to examine the personal, social, political, spiritual and materialistic aspects of marriage. These dream-like scenarios reflect deep-seated conflicts and ambivalence that are as old as the institution of marriage itself. The quotes, carefully selected by the artist, are an essential part of the dialogue and narrative, guiding us beyond the passive façade of the brides to the storm that simmers just beneath the surface. Miller’s work reflects the roles women play in society, highlighting unreal expectations, misconceptions, fairytale beliefs and surrounding myths. Icons of innocence and purity, such as veils and bouquets, are viewed through the artist’s unique lens to reveal a hidden and often darker truth lurking behind assumed customs and rituals
