    About The Work

    In this photograph, Schmidt depicts herself in a luscious bamboo forest with her back turned towards the viewer. Surrounded by tall trees, her tiny body looks as though it would get lost in the density of the forest, if not for the clearing in the distance. It, along with the bamboo stalks and Schmidt's own body, recalls the triangular compositions and vanishing point perspective of classic works of Renaissance art.

    The photograph is part of the Home Stills series, the entirety of which was published in a book by Jovis/DAP in 2011.
