About the Artwork

Tony Mendoza’s Lydia and Halloween series features his daughter, Lydia, in four different Halloween costumes chronicled throughout her life.  Mendoza hand-dates each of his editions based off the year the photograph was taken rather than the year it was printed. The artist also includes a brief description beneath each image, providing viewers with a short story within his greater concept.

Curatorial Opinion

Mendoza’s series, Lydia and Halloweenshows us the transformation of a toddler in 1992 to a young adult in 2006. This time she is dressed as a cat, holding the subject of her costume. The characteristic gaze is still there in her eyes, unchanged by growing up, and the cat in her hands captures the feline attitude supremely.

About the Process

Haystack collaborates with traditional printmakers and digital printers to ensure each artist’s print reflects the most important aspects of their studio practice. An experienced printer himself, each print in the Lydia and Halloween series was printed by the artist. Every Archival Pigment Print was digitally printed with a lab-calibrated inkjet printer using pigment-based inks (this process is also known as Giclée printing). Canson Baryta Paper was specifically developed for inkjet technology and offers the look and feel of an original darkroom print, making it an ideal choice for black and white photography.
