Senior Exhibition 2010: Allison Spangler

Allison Spangler, Senior Exhibition 2010

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.”
