DESCRIPTIONCosplay is known to the general public especially when it involves portraying superheroes. Barbara represents her own superhero, a dragon spirit. Together with her husband, she models life-sized dragons and exhibits them. She then brings these figures, which are otherwise just static, to life by transforming part of a figure into a costume.
The picture is taken in the Calanca Valley in the south of Switzerland. The mountain river's strength matches the strength of a dragon. Its mystical quality is underlined by the imperfection of a Polaroid.
