Gallery FIFTY ONE
Fifty One Fine Art Photography is pleased to present the exhibition of new work by Katy Grannan. Like the previous series, Mystic Lake features portraits of ordinary people exposing themselves, physically and psychologically, in public settings. All of the subjects were unknown to Grannan and some are respondents to ads the artist placed in local newspapers. Grannan empowers them to suggest poses, locations, and states of undress. Each project explores the desire to be immortalized in a still image and Grannan does this in a rich and complex way, she photographs a wide variety of portrait sitters with frankness, while also maintaining their mystery.
