JANE LONG

Jane Long is an Australian photographer and digital artist that erases the boundary between reality and fantasy using photography and photo-manipulation. Her series “Dancing with Costică” invites us to a journey back in time. She came up with the concept for this collection while working on her retouching skills. The main characters in these images were created with antique photographs by Romanian photographer Costică Acsinte (1897-1984). Through digital edition, Long endows them with color, new backgrounds, lighting and completely new stories. According to her, “I wanted to bring them to life but I also wanted to give them a story.” She feels her work should not be categorized as photography or painting or collage. We fully agree with her: giving new life to these characters is pure magic.
