Another Amazing Women Photographer

at Sunday, November 07, 2010

Skoglund is a more current photographer. But what she is so remarkable I just had to post some pictures of hers. She gives Photoshop a bad name. I find her very interesting.  I hope you like her work too.

Skoglund creates surrealist images by building elaborate sets or tableaux, furnishing them with carefully selected small children and other objects, a process of which takes her months to complete. Finally, she photographs the set, complete with actors. The works are characterized by an overwhelming amount of one object and either bright, contrasting colors or a monochromatic color scheme.
One of her most-known sculptures, entitled Radioactive Cats, features green-painted clay cats running amok in a gray kitchen. An older man sits in a chair with his back facing the camera while his elderly wife looks into a refrigerator that is the same color as the walls. Another image, Fox Games has a similar feel to Radioactive Cats and is also widely recognized. A third and final oft-recognized piece by her features numerous fish hovering above people in bed late at night and is called Revenge of the Goldfish.

Can you guess what she used in all of her photos to create the look???

LOVE IT!! I got in trouble in my photography class because I always wanted to do weird, warped, colorful things like this. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing her.

Sorry but photo number 3 starting from the bottom is not Tina', but this is definitely Cabbage Leaf (1931) by Edward Weston.
