the 30 & sub rosa
how exciting to come home to the PDN 30 issue in my mailbox! congratulations to all the featured photographers. i was especially interested to see Hot Shot Birthe Piontek listed, because i've been planning to head over to the Jen Bekman Gallery, where Piontek's work is showing right now as part of the Bekman's annual Ne Plus Ultra show. the show is up until March 15.
Birthe Piontek cites Anna Gaskell and David Lynch as influences, though i have to say i see a shinier, sharper shadow of Hellen van Meene in her work as well. the photos above are from Piontek's project Sub Rosa, which has received a lot of attention.
