Featuring photographers seen at the Medium Festival in San Diego....
I admit that I am already a fan and friend of Los Angeles photographer, Marjorie Salvaterra, but I have no hesitancy in sharing the new body of work (still in progress) she brought to the Medium Festival. Marjorie is a diminutive and determined photographer, creating large scale and compelling visual gestures that don't reflect her stature. Her new project, HER, is influenced by Italian cinema, with a European sensibility and an out- of-the-box approach to image making that reflects the world of women--the land mines of life, motherhood, friendships, relationships that we all navigate through on a daily basis.
I am a decent woman.
A pretty good wife -- with a great therapist, otherwise I would’ve screwed this one up way too many times.
A mother – I think this one I do best except between the hours of 6:15 and 7:30pm and certain whole days at a time.
A daughter – I was a pretty terrible daughter growing up. I’m starting to get the hang of it now that I’m a parent.
A good sister.
And lastly a friend. To some, the best and to others, impossibly guarded.
