Senior Exhibition 2010: Allison Spangler
Spangler uses digital and analog photography to capture images of nude models in outdoor settings. Shooting in cold weather caused discomfort for the models that brought forth a sense of unnaturalness, which has become a goal of the work: to evoke a sense of discomfort or dislocation. Using a uniform position for all her subjects, with faces turned away, Spangler wants “viewers to identify with my models as ‘the figure’ rather than a specific person.”
