Carla Williams

I'm still swooning over these haunting, ethereal self-portraits from LA-bred photographer/author/writer Carla Williams, who has done us the very generous favor of making her entire body of work available on her website, Carlagirl Photo. These images are from her Pleasure and Beauty: Self-Portraits from 1985-1990 series, which was developed during her years as a student, and without an eye to making a Statement. Surely this accounts for energetic purity of this work-- which in my opinion amplifies its significance many times over. On a lighter note, I'd love to hang large-scale prints of these heartbreakingly lovely images in a dressing room-- my dressing room. Only there aren't any large-scale prints. And I don't have a dressing room yet.
