Ode to Pictoralists

English:

AnnMarie Tornabene's biggest inspiration are the photographs from the Pictorialist period, mainly the works of of Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Steichen and Anne Brigman. The thread that ties this work to her other works are the themes, sometimes mythological and symbolic -  the questioning of one’s faith, dealing with aging, beauty, and life transitions even if personal were shown even from that time period.

 

The Ode to the Pictorialists is an on-going series because, as AnnMarie works, some of the images naturally lend itself to the “look” of that time.
