I Am Not This Body: Photographs by Barbara Ess

The artist’s pinhole camera images, made over the last twenty years, describe a mysterious world of seemingly mundane surfaces, where everyday objects are mantled in inscrutability. Ess creates unsettling images with an unparalleled harmony of technique and content.  Exhibition organized by Aperture, with accompanying publication, I Am Not This Body (Aperture 2001, 96 pages/65 color images), which contains essays by critic Guy Armstrong, author Michael Cunningham, and musician Thurston Moore
