BEAUTY: Photography--Emily Blincoe

Photographer Emily Blincoe whimsically color codes candy for her "Sugar Series." I love how these objects, associated with the joy and energy of childhood, are so carefully organized and clinically studied... it is that contrast and tension that makes these images so compelling... like being able to stop a force of nature to really take it in, to contemplate it, to study it from all angles. In addition to taking on new meaning by being next to other pieces of disparately shaped candy, these images are--well, for me at least--charged with memories of my own childhood.

Prints are available for purchase on her website!
