In the Blink of an Eye: Elinor Carucci
We've loved the work of Elinor Carucci ever since I caught her show last fall at Houk Gallery right here in New York and fell in love with her intimate, beautifully composed photography. There's something about the saturated, melancholy lighting and the close scale of her work that is suffused with a sort of loving yet abstract tenderness, as if the image is already elegiac and existing within memory already. (It's the same quality that I love about most of Wong Kar-Wai's films.) The Israeli-born Carucci has been infiltrating the fashion magazine world lately, with editorials appearing in places like W, Jane, and Paper, where she recently shot Chan Marshall for the cover story. Despite whatever place her images turn up, the people she photographs always look incredibly human and fully gorgeous without needing too much adornment, fuss or feathers -- and who doesn't love that?
