women photographers

Woman + Photographer + Feminist Series: Edition One

Carnal knowledge by Anne Ferran

Gelatin silver photographs 39 x 58 cm or 40 x 52 cm, 1984.

Intimate portraits of Ferrans’s daughters (+ friends) whose youthful bodies have been distorted by a stone rendering effect making them unconventional photographs (even now) of close-ups that appear cut across the frame, incomplete, distorted and fragmented. The images are about burgeoning desire and glimpses of emerging sexuality.
