Tainted Beauty

"Classically composed, softly focused, elegant and melancholic, Deborah Turbeville’s distinctive photographic tableaux present us with broken narratives. Describing herself as “avant-garde and extreme”, her stories are only partly told, featuring seemingly lost characters connected to the audience through their direct yet subdued interaction with the camera’s lens. Born in 1938, Turbeville is of a generation of fashion photographers, alongside Richard Avedon and Guy Bourdin who focused on the subject in their photographs as opposed to the clothes they are wearing, and who followed their own distinct conceptual agenda, rather than that of the stylist." Well said. (via Nowness)
