Waiting Room

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!

Josh Olins, Dazed & Confused February 2010

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.

    I’ve marvelled over this dress, too. It’s truly fascinating. And Corinne Day died? Did I block this out? She was such a wonderful photographer.
