Excited to be a part of this upcoming photo show with such inspiring women in Seattle.
Here is a little something I had to say about my work in regards to the event:
“What moves me about… what’s called “technique”… is that it comes from some mysterious deep place. It can have something to do with the paper and the developer and all that stuff, but it comes mostly from some very deep choices somebody has made that take a long time and keep haunting them.” –Diane Arbus
I really like thinking of one’s voice, or technique in their work as something that continues to haunt them, as Diane states. One of the things that I continue to develop through my own photographs is taking women out of the norm of the usual beauty shot, and bringing things in to a more strange place. Women are so much more than just a pretty face to look at. I enjoy bringing the weird, wild, and sometimes dark parts of them forward in my portraits, because that is what I find interesting and empowering about us.
