Camilla Holmgren, Don't Look Now 5, 2004

Camilla Holmgren often photographs herself, in self-consciously staged self-portraits, focusing on the awkward side of eroticism. Flirtation and seduction, like any other exercise of power, rarely play out seamlessly or according to plan. “When pointing the camera at oneself” she says, “You expose certain vulnerability and a lack of distance in your work. Issues of identity and subjectivity become much clearer. For me these were the issues of a woman’s own space, a woman’s view on woman.”
