2011 - VAMP: High Tea Edition

 

_"in his latest project, Vamp: [High Tea Edition], Cameron explores popular culture’s obsession with the beautiful and seductive vampire figure; a physical manifestation of the desirable other. Vamp is a cookbook featuring a series of alluring images of high tea recipes; while immediately appealing to the senses, examination of the accompanying texts reveals blood as an ingredient in each recipe. The seductive qualities expressed through each image functions in a similar way to the vampire in popular culture; engaging the viewer in such a way that we come to accept the abject."
