Blog – Erin O’Keefe

At a time where contemporary photographic practice persistently looks to highlight and consider the very nature, process and authenticity of the medium itself, the work of New Yorker based photographer and architect Erin O’Keefe presents a valuable and considered approach. Most notably her recent series titled ‘The Flatness’, referring to both the material flatness of the photograph itself, as well as the perceptual flattening of the still life space, provides a stimulating discourse on current aesthetic, language and themes within photography. O’ Keefe produces these images by photographing still life arrangements comprised of self painted plywood boards and physical photographic prints depicting Photoshop produced gradients with the camera working as the facilitator, compressing and altering dimensions.
