Los Angeles-based fine-art photographer Eleonora Ghioldi learned about photography through printing the work of renowned photographers, including Helmut Newton, Graciela Iturbide, Lauren Greenfield, Wim Wenders and Donata Wenders. In her current series, Ghioldi aims to challenge the concept of female identity. “Women are identified primarily through their physical appearance in our society; their bodies are tools to express moods, desires, feelings and ideas,” she explains. By stripping away traditional elements that often define women in our contemporary society, Ghioldi presents the female form in its most bare state.
These images were captured with a 35 mm and a medium-format camera, and printed on 16 x 20 silver gelatin prints.

Mark Seliger’s elegiac nude study is a meditation through slow looking that speaks metaphorically of the eternal themes of love and death. Paying homage to Seliger’s forebears Brandt, Kertesz, Hosoe, and Penn, the nuanced tones of the platinum palladium convey the rich textures of his sensibilities. Seliger’s work will be on display with the Steven Kasher Gallery at the AIPAD Photography Show New York, March 17-20, 2011, at the Park Avenue Armory.- AIPAD.

Carrie Levy, New York based photographer and photo editor, has her third solo show with Daniel Cooney Fine Art opening today on February 17th. Levy says, “Being a female artist and the authority behind this work, I chose solely male subjects in order to enhance the submissive nature of the imagery.
You Before All questions the line that separates pain from pleasure. The work magnifies how in the moment it is hard to decipher between these two very different emotions. Both are intense, but are very much the opposite of another. The aim in this body of work is to ask the viewer to uncover which one of these emotions is behind a single frame and where he or she is more sympathetic.” To see more of Levy’s work click here.
