The voting for Critical Mass 2009 technically wrapped up today and I was pleased to be one of the reviewers this year. I took my time and looked through work from the selected 175 photographers over the last few weeks. It has been both exhausting and amazing. One photographer on my “Wow” list was Parsley Steinweiss and her “Stacks” series.
About her work, she states, “I have always found it natural to look at things from a close perspective. By cropping my subjects closely I become intimate with them and also abstract them. By this treatment, familiar subjects become unrecognizable and require new investigation. The shape-shifting ambiguity made possible by the photographic lens resonates with my general sense of a world unseen by the naked eye, a world of possibilities. As a general theme I am interested in patterns of growth. Over the past couple of months I have been stacking things and taking photographs of the various accumulations. The photographs catalog documents that surround me: books, papers, magazines, journals, sketchpads and photographs. In “Contact Sheets” I have stacked hundreds of photographic contact sheets and prints that I have created over the past ten years. The result is a series of lines, each representing a print that I have made, a sedimentary record of creative growth.”
Jen Bekman’s 20×200 Wednesday edition last week featured Parsley Steinweiss and her “Contact Sheets” photograph. You can own an 8″x10″ print, in an edition of 200, for just $20! Just click here.
