Photographer Find at Art Chicago - Melanie Schiff
You probably don't know this young Chicago Photographer yet...
but you will soon!
We first spotted her work at the NADA Miami'04 fair..
but it's great to see the development of her art.
She's got a new show opening up at the MCA tomorrow
which is running only through May 27th. Melanie has been recently featured in :
Melanie Schiff's new project, Underwater Photographer, which included video as well as still photos, really remind us of the current youth culture work of Ryan McGinley, Wolfgang Tillmans, and maybe even a bit Catherine Opie. But it's clear, she's already developed a photographic look all her own. (Photo #2, Video Still, Perfect Square, 2006, DVD Loop)
So what do you think of these images?
- A wonderful "underwater project" or just All Wet ?
- All flash and no folly, or a brilliant use of light from an up and coming fresh young visionary?
And her photos are ever fairly priced at $4,000 each in editions of only three.
