Steve Parry – Anne
|Anne Boleyn was without doubt Henry’s best known wife, mostly because of the way she was tried and executed. This series of three images explores the emotion Anne must have felt on the 18 May 1536 the day before her execution.
For everything Anne was and no matter how busy she tried to keep herself or how much she tried to make light of her situation the reality of the event scheduled to happen the next day cant have been fare below the surface. Reports from the time indicate that Anne revolved around a full gamut of emotions on this day, from strength and resilience, joviality, fear, despair and finally reflection.
This series was intended to capture just some of these emotions and invite the viewer to imagine how they may have felt in her situation.
