Item description for Katy Grannan: Model American by Lesley Martin Jan Avgikos...

Working with ordinary people who answered ads in local papers, posing them in their nondescript homes or unexceptional landscapes, and using relatively simple equipment, Katy Grannan alchemizes these factors into extraordinary photographs. Disarming for their directness and for the provocative but casual nudity on display, her pictures capture the spirit of her subjects in the manner of Diane Arbus, but they also draw upon the artificial, posed tableaux of Gregory Crewsdon and, indeed, art history. The posture of the tattooed and tanned (and nude) figure in Mike, a 2003 portrait which appeared in the 2004 Whitney Biennial, resembles nothing so much as the awkward repose of the desert nomad in Henri Rousseau's Sleeping Gypsy. In this first monograph, over half of the photographs are previously unpublished, providing a fresh depth to our understanding of this already widely known and accomplished young artist. Sitting on a dirt road in a knit bikini, standing defiantly in a corner of a cheaply paneled living room, leaning languidly against a chain-link fence, Grannan's photoraphs convey the dark side that we all have as well as the need to be recognized as unique individuals.

Reviews - What do customers think about Katy Grannan: Model American?

portraits of a high order, with some room to grow  Aug 6, 2006
this work is excellent, but the switches in style and syntax, from black and white to color especially, makes the book as a whole a bit disjointed. the portraits are often brilliant, especially the color which seems to fit the voyeuristic, disposable nature of the poses and looks collaborated on by grannan and her subjects. it is an interesting work and destined to raise heated debate in photographic circles.
