BEAUTY: Photography--Ingrid Baars
The fine art photography of Ingrid Baars' l'Afrique series focuses on the iconic beauty of images of women from ancient Africa. I love how Baars takes photographs of women but morphs them into carved African heads and masks, the kind that inspired Cubist artists in the early twentieth century, or mystical goddesses. Some remind me of the marvelous work that Jean-Paul Goude was doing with Grace Jones in the 80s.
