This is one of my favorite editorials. If I had a Miss Havisham fate, this would be my wedding dress. Oh, what have I done!
I knew of Corinne Day, but it wasn’t until her recent death that I actually looked at her full body of work. The substance of her photos really appeals to me. She creates a mood with the subject instead of relying on special effects and extravagant backgrounds. A woman sitting in a chair or a woman against a textured wall is simple, but very beautiful.
This self-portrait characterizes Falstaff, a Shakespearean michief maker. Usdin’s photos often represent her dreams and nightmares. It’s an eerie but very cool inspiration and makes me curious to see more.
