i'm looking forward to exploring the work of the 31 women who have been chosen for Humble Arts Foundation's "31 under 31: young women in art photography." several of the names are new to me.
one is Ahndraya Parlato. i think her pictures are very appealing. the top image is especially sweet. and the anti-portrait below it is witty and makes me miss late summer... they are both from the series "Inscape." as a whole, her portfolios don't quite come together for me yet. but i love the large format look of them and the color.
in her project statement, she writes: "By highlighting the uncanny in our world, I show traditional conceptions of comfort, wholeness and perfection to be constructed and impossible ideals."
