Hef Prentice is an analog photographer, filmmaker and visual artist with a multicultural background. Prentice captures the blurry line between darkness and innocence, desire and restraint. Her young subjects, donning fishnet tights and sheer underwear, inhabit decadent interiors hidden from the outside world. Capturing intimate atmospheres on 35mm film, the young analog photographer casts a curious eye on young sensuality. When she’s not shooting, Prentice also flexes her fashion stylist and visual artist muscles from time to time.
The short film “Dreams” is about Ethereal girls (the nymphs) wake up in a cat’s home. They gradually get to appear in all of the house spaces, where they share, daydream, love and feel nostalgic. They represent feminity, sensuality and love.
At the end of the film, they vanish and only the true inhabitant of the house, the cat, remains, getting the idea that it all was just a dream.
