Snow White

Sanne De Wilde is a Flemish photographer uses people with albinism  for her series Snow White.

She states: “Like photographic material, people with albinism are light sensitive. Light leaves an irreversible imprint on their body. This whiteness that makes them stand out, when captured in an image, almost makes them dissolve, consumed by the light. Their eyes can hardly bear it. Nevertheless they have the power to look back at us, the viewer, and embody a human-mirror. They are a metaphor, a symbol for stereotypes, they magnify the erroneous idea of human weaknesses and physical fragility but also that of an invincible strength. Touched by their breath-taking beauty, in this series, I try to create a powerful impression of this fragile snow white.”

Here are a few new paintings by artist Sherry Wolf who combines the early century Modernist painters such as Mondrian  with subjects dressed in the same patterns. Very psychedelic and swinging Sixtes.
