I'm a fine-art photographer based in Boston. This blog is where I post artwork that inspires me, as well as some of my own work.

You can view my photography on my website.

I also have a blog called Galaxy Girls and Lady Knights where I discuss and review books written by women in the science fiction and fantasy genres.

Dark Matters" at Bash Contemporary.

Opening this Saturday, May 31st at Bash Contemporary in San Francisco, California is the three person show “Dark Matters" which will feature brand new work by artists Robert Bowen, Caitlin Hackett and Dave Correia.  All three artists share a cold, disconnected aesthetic that results in horrific creatures and nightmare-scapes.  Though haunting, these works are beautiful and stunning.

Check out more works from each of the artists and a glimpse into their studios where they work below:

1. You’re going to have to treat every man like an explosive until he proves to you that he’s burnt out. Often, the wolves are disguised as woodcutters.
2. Being a lady ain’t easy, honey, but somebody’s gotta do it.
3. When he asks to see your body, show him your fists.
4. Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”
5. If they ask you to give them a smile, spit on their shoes.
6. Never be afraid to take up space – you’ve earned it. You deserve it.
7. When a boy claims to be a gentleman and keeps asking for your hand, tell him you’ll give him a finger. Yeah, you know the one I’m talking about.
8. ‘No’ is your friend. Practice saying it in the mirror so it will slip out like venom when he puts his hands on you.
9. Your worth is measured only by how happy you are. Nothing more, nothing less.
10. You are a fucking firework. I’m so proud of you.

4x5 portra 160 taken today…

to test my newly acquired jobo cpp2 processor, about which I have had wrenching ebayer’s remorse, and with which I had terrible results the other day with 120 and 35mm (the latter of which I never process or scan…except in lieu of self flagellation). But these today did help to slightly mollify mounting anxiety and searing ambivalence about opening a 1 hr photo lab next to my toilet.

I WASNT PREPARED

The reason the clone aspect of the show is so riveting (and feels downright brilliant) is particularly evident when you look at it on a perspective level. How often do you see hashtags trending on twitter like #ThatsWhatSlutsDo or #LiesToldByFemales or #mygirlfriendnotallowedto? Terrible blanket statements about women and their behaviors, thoughts, and actions happen all.the.time.

The idea that ladies all think and act the same (many vaginas, one mind?) is an old one: past generations and years engrained societal thought have allowed and perpetuated this for years. By making the main protagonists of the show female clones, Orphan Black forces the viewer — even though they all have the same face; even though they’re all played by the same actress — to see them all as unique, individual humans in spite of that. Because they’re autonomous people, they deserve the freedom from outside control that they seek: the right to govern their own body in whatever way they see fit. Ha! See where we’re going with this?
