Another Girl, Another Planet

March 1999

Description

Another Girl, Another Planet features the photographs of twelve artists from around the world, all of whom employ a narrative documentary style, utilizing/playing the conventions of reportage, narrative documentary, story-telling, portraiture, forensic and snap-shot photography. Collapsing the distinction between the factual and fictive, these artists have projected their own histories through the lens and onto their subjects. Accordingly, much of this work has been sighted, staged and choreographed. Here the complex relationship between the camera and sexuality is explored, inextricably linking the photographic act with voyeurism and sexual desire. Familiar scenes are elevated into compact dramatic vignettes.
