Females – Photos by Ornella Mazzola

“Females is a project that concerns all women of my family. This research began naturally. I started shooting my family’s women few years ago without having any particular project in mind. Photographing them was a way of approaching them, bridging the distance, in silence and on tiptoes.” –Ornella Mazzola

On The Periphery by Sinziana Velicescu

Sinziana Velicescu, one of last year’s 30 Under 30 Women Photographers, just published her first book with her series On the Periphery, a seemingly simplistic subject matter, often over-used, but executed in such a manner as to be exceptional in its artistic results. Published by Aint-Bad / Forward by Matthew Hong.

Some recent notable Profiles include Andy Denzler’s dizzying paintings and sculptures, on view at the Vienna Contemporary; Jennifer Emerling, previously selected as one of the 30 Under 30 / Women Photographers with her evocative photos of American folklore; Lee Bae’s thought-provoking work as elemental as ink, carbon, and cinder, on view at KIAF Art Seoul 2017.
