    Discuss a Justyna Mielnikiewicz photograph

    I didn't know anything about this Polish photographer working out of the Republic of Georgia before, but I just saw this fantastic image in the NYT and thought I would look for more--



    Here's the article for context (and in case the link doesn't work)--

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/20/we...rtner=homepage

    And here is a slideshow connected to the article with her own narration--

    http://www.nytimes.com/packages/khtm...A_FEATURE.html

    And here's her website with a portfolio of B&W work--

    Martin Parr was also my thinking!
    Good light and nice shadows!

    Do you think this one's like Martin Parr, then?

    Or this?
    Quite interesting in relation to another thread...

    Sparky, I'm following the suggestion that digging a little deeper furthers understanding. On the whole, a quite reasonable suggestion. Especially when that's done through looking at further work...She is not someone I would in general compare with Martin Parr, though I understand the connection in the first image.

    I find her work interesting. I like the one where she has the horse on the beach and is dressed like a cossack. It's not what you would expect.

    I was thinking the image superficially resembled a few I'd seen of Parr's. I wasn't, even for a moment, trying to suggest any sort of borrowing from Parr. Even if they were - I really wouldn't have a problem with it - I think it's pefectly valid. But I'm not even thinkin' that. I'm just sayin'...

    Doesn't float my boat.

    Pictures of fat tourists holidaying in the Mediterranean, Black Sea or where ever doesn't do much for me.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
