Some Work Examples:
“Myths and Tales” is inspired by her own life and dreams. Every image is thought out in detail and carefully staged to capture her inspiration. As a gifted stylist and with her own inventory of props, she personally creates the mood and visual setting for each shot. Diffused perspectives, achieved by using pinhole photography transferred on Polaroid, create an almost transcendent expression – like notations of memories, which come and go.
“Exotic World” is an extremely colorful body of work, which documents a famous burlesque stripper event in the desert of Victorville. Lydecker’s artistic interpretation contradicts the almost voyeuristic approach to the subject while creating and exciting sensuality.
