Elisa Lazo de Valdez aka Visioluxus


This lady uses the time-honored technique of obscuring the features of her models to powerful effect. I’m still useless at telling women photographers from men when it comes to figurative work. There really does seem to be no dividing line. Either it’s exploitative crap (regardless of how much skin is involved), or the work is transcendent in some way. That is, it exceeds, in one or more ways, the sum of its parts (subject, medium, genre, technique, etc.).
