Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

The communing found in GIRL PLAY is personal, interrupts social stigmas and stereotypes of women’s relationships to cannabis, alternatively framing the plant in the context of adjusting the good life; it motivates and shapes knowledge, by renegotiating and fine-tuning our attachments to pre-existing life narratives. I unlock inhibitions to visualize powerful female openness in lush depictions of strength and dream-like narratives. I want the viewer to consider the relationship of the photograph to the visible world, through the female gaze where landscapes are subverted, women are unashamed, provoked, rebelling and changing destinies.
