Frontier Photography – Carrie Levy

Posted on: May 20, 2011

Mark, 2010

In You Before All, I continue to use my camera to harshly manipulate my subjects.  I introduce two paradoxical states: pain and ecstasy.  I contort my subjects to look like victims; however, whether they are victims of pain or pleasure is open to debate.

Ethan, 2011

My role as the photographer is to play the part of the predator. I want the viewer to question my motives as they experience the harm–or pleasure–inflicted on my models. As a female artist and the authority behind this work, I chose solely male subjects in order to enhance the submissive nature of the imagery.

Chris, 2010
