Kostas Rutkauskas’ series Marcela is an elegant review; a beautiful woman poses under bright lights, against white backgrounds and through the shadows of another woman–her mystique ignites through her eyes.
Guillaume Pépy astounds with his photos from the Antarctic, the wide expanse of snow juxtaposes against the crisp black and white of the penguin and the grey of the seal. Terra Incognita is a reflection of the unadorned and wild beauty of a space that belongs wholly to nature.
Silver on Glass by Robert M. Brandstaetter is a series in collodion that sweeps one up in light and darkness. His models stand in a place of stillness where some dare with their eyes and others defy with their stance–none can be labeled, all individuals.
Joy Goldkind tells us her series, Dancers is inspired by the dancers she met while on vacation in Havana, she says “I tried to capture the feel of the music in movement and form.” Skirts swirl and heads shake and one can feel the vibration of the music through the movement in each image.
Ando Fuchs’ series Elegant Street Photography is as equally elegant as it is haunting. One can feel Fuch’s love for Venice as he captures the modern day-to-day goings on in one of the most historical and romantic cities in the world.
Kita Etsuko tells us best about her series: Mirage is but a long journey within the unilluminated corners of self, where the darkness longs to be softly touched by the light.” The series feels like a poem to the self, a reaching out, just like Etsuko says, softly to that place inside of us that needs the most love.
My essay considers the notion of marriage and art, how the two fit, or don’t fit together. Married to art, is it a lonely existence? explores how marriage can affect an artist’s commitment to their art.
