Daniel Gordon Studio

Portrait Studio


In this book I am playing with the trope of an artist and his muse. Both the images within the book, as well as the “mash-up” poem on the back cover, incorporate different takes on classic artist/muse relationships in literature and history, from Frankenstein to the inspiration Alfred Stieglitz found through Georgia O’Keefe. I have attempted to bring to life these cobbled together images of body parts through the magic of photography; with the acceptance that human form can be simultaneously beautiful and terrifying, loved
and exploited.
