Duschvorhangsegel

Gebrauchte Segel sind da ein dankbares Material, schließlich sind die ja bereits wind- und wettererprobt. Segel setzen zur Körperpflege. Link > Spinnaker

Jill Greenberg: Glass Ceiling

(8 years ago)
On shows that would be lovely to see in person ~ the master manipulator photographer, Jill Greenberg, has a NY show coming up ~ “Glass Ceiling” at ClampArt starting on June 16th. She “revisits her interest in feminist art for her new series (which was the focus of her senior thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design over twenty years ago). The photographs in this body of work picture female athletes and dancers underwater engaged in a variety of ambiguous and dynamic movements. The women wear colorful bathing suits and high heels in complimentary hues, forcing one to question how and why these models are immersed.” Even in times like today, so much, yet so little has changed. And it’s hard not to be reminded you’re a woman (which of course is a double edged sword… depending on how you wield it!) ~ and these pictures capture a feeling that i’m sure we’ve all come up against…. is she breaking through the glassy water tension? or is she just gasping for air? Take a peek at the stunning series on the next page…TO PAGE 2 of "Jill Greenberg: Glass Ceiling"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)
