Rebecca Graham's eerie photographs are infused with what she calls an air of "elegant corruption." She says, "My work is dedicated to those who are dependent on beauty in order to survive in modern society. Infused with influences from literature, decadent black humor and childhood mythologies, every image begins as a roughly drawn sketch. My background in painting, sculpture and set and costume design all come into play in this process of creating theatrical compositions that give evidence to a parallel life thinly, but decidedly walled against modern-day banalities."Read Less
About the Artist
About Rebecca Graham
Her photographs begin as detailed drawings that she then brings to life by transforming herself and her friends into the characters she imagines. The resulting compositions are both sweet and hauntingly ethereal. Exiled from her hometown of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Graham continues to develop her style in her adopted city, Minneapolis.Read Less
