Those are really interesting. Not sure I could hang them on my wall though. My brain would be annoyed.

I love these. I am disturbed however that she is a journalist and poet and photographer. I'd settle for one of those...

I love what she did with light. So interesting and gives each photo a maturity not produced by many.

She's got something with symmetries, and pairs, no? Loving especially the birdie ones.

A very complicated relationship indeed. I'm always unconfortable with animals in cages.

She certainly knows how evoke a certain amount of discomfort, doesn't she.

While I like them, a lot, I am having a negetive reaction, emotionally.

These are incredible. I love the surreal quality of some of these - and the unsettling quality of others.

Those are definitely COOL. But wtf is the one in the water with a tail? That is creepy.

I really thought they were paintings. There's one of what looks like a falcon, which reminds me of something that happened to me recently. I had a falcon guest in my home. I found the little guy in my back yard, and took him in for the night.
