I know… I am a little bit late for this post…
I did the draft yesterday but had no energy after my run to finish it and simply had to sleep shortly after…!
So, let’s do this now, let’s write few words about Hannah Whitaker’s photographs ☺
This American artist experiments photography with a high interest to the structural limitations using in particular the geometry and repetitive pattern for her various subjects (landscapes, portraits, nudes, close up…). For this, she use a clever mechanical process of multiple exposures with sometimes hand cut paper screens.
This is beautifully done: each pictures is perfectly balanced (color, light…), and she succeed by this way to magnify the abstract over the content.
