a little more on Uta..


As I was posting on Uta Barth I peeked in in some of the work her gallery Tanya Bonakder has online and I just got so seduced,
so inspired and just had to share more of her with all of you...


I am sure you all will be able to see why I love her work so much.
So simple....all that negative space...gorgeous.


Deceptively simple, Uta Barth's photographic works question the traditional functions of pictures and our expectations of them. By photographing in ordinary anonymous places - in simple rooms, city streets, airports and fields - Barth uses what is natural and unstudied to shift attention away from the subject matter, and redirect focus to a consciousness of the processes of perception and the visceral and intellectual pleasures of seeing.
words from here. a great article to read on her work


Sometimes I look at her images and think I have that same image on my negatives...and that makes me feel really good...
