Photographer, Olivia Bee, is releasing a book of her photos on November 22 titled Olivia Bee: Kids in Love. I saw a Slate article, and checked out her photography, and loved it. The first gallery of photos below is Kids in Love, and below that is a second collection titled Enveloped in a Dream. Finally, below that, is a collection of her new work, which I think is incredible, and shows a lot of growth. Preorder her book on Amazon.
Note: photos ALL belong to Olivia Bee, and not us, and we take no credit for any of this loveliness.
Enveloped in a Dream
i-D recently covered Anny Lutwak's photography, which depicts how often the very real hardships and struggles women face, are turned into aesthetically pleasing images and ignored. The series is called "Female Trouble" and images from her website can be found below. Lutwak told i-D:
The photos themselves triggered the thought process more than anything else. I started photographing this project with the intention of making a study of performance, and relating that to the way many of the issues women face are ignored or seen as false. As I began putting together the ideas and the photographs, I began to question my authority in the situation. I don't believe I have the qualifications to talk about some of things I'm dealing with in these photographs — which is difficult because I took them and take full responsibility for the images I created. It definitely made me think a lot about how far I can and should go with my photographs in terms of ethics.
