Jessica Craig Martin



 

JESSICA CRAIG-MARTIN LIVES AND WORKS IN NEW YORK CITY BUT USES THE WORLD OF
INTERNATIONAL NIGHTLIFE AS HER STUDIO. AS A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO HAS WORKED
FOR VOGUE AND VANITY FAIR, AMONG OTHERS, CRAIG-MARTIN HAS USED HER READY
ACCESS TO THE GLITZ AND GLAMOUR OF WELL-HEELED SOCIETY. CROPPED AND
OBLIQUELY ANGLED, CRAIG-MARTIN’S PHOTOGRAPHS RARELY ALLOW FOR THE
IDENTIFICATION OF HER SUBJECT’S FACES, THUS SUBVERTING THE CONCEPT OF
SOCIETY PAGE PARTY PICTURES, AND INSTEAD POINTS TOWARDS THE BAUBLES, PLUMAGE
AND THE TELLING DETAILS WHICH OFFER COMMENTARY ON SOCIETY’S OBSESSION WITH
SURFACE.
