Patty Carroll, Anonymous Women: Domestic Demise
(image credit: Cowgirl, Edition 1/10, 2020)
In the latest narratives, “Demise,” the woman becomes the victim of domestic disasters. Her activities, obsessions and objects are overwhelming her. Her home has become a site of tragedy. The scenes of her heartbreaking end are loosely inspired by several sources including the game of clue, where murder occurs in one of five rooms of the house: Dining Room, Kitchen, Hall, Conservatory, and Library.
Holly Andres, The Fallen Fawn
The Fallen Fawn continues Holly Andres's examination of personal narrative and feminine subjectivity depicting short melodramas inspired by childhood memories. In large-scale, lush color images, Andres revisits the complexity of childhood, the ﬂeeting nature of memory, and female introspection. The Fallen Fawn is based on a personal account of Andres’ two older sisters who, as adolescent girls, discovered a woman's lost or abandoned suitcase near the river behind their house. Knowing it was a valuable treasure, they took it home, hid it under their bed, and when they could, often during the night, secretly dressed up in this "mystery woman's" belongings.
Anouk Masson Krantz, West the American Cowboy
French photographer Anouk Masson Krantz traveled the West to capture the everyday lives of The American Cowboy. "Even as a child growing up in France, Anouk Masson Krantz loved horses and cowboys. After she moved to the United States as an adult, her youthful passions evolved into photographic projects spanning years. Her first book, the bestselling Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, compiled a decade’s worth of photographs taken on a remote barrier island off the coast of Georgia. Her new book, WEST: The American Cowboy, offers a contemporary depiction of Western ranch and rodeo life."
