Mary Anne Mitchell
The waves are crashing and the lone figure is approaching, is he friend or foe? The girl appears to be washed ashore; is she asleep, just resting, or worse? The young man is entangled in the net or is he…?
This work documents the world in a manner that transforms the subject into something quite different from reality. The work depicts situations, often mysterious, which draw the viewer into a narrative. The subject often appears isolated in a strange or surreal setting. These depictions sometimes seem like an overlooked moment in our peripheral vision. Other times they feel like they are visions from a whimsical imagination. In each piece, the artist invites the observer into her curious world. They evoke ambiguous moods and each viewer’s response to them will be tempered by their own experiences.
Mary Anne Mitchell is a freelance photographer in Atlanta, GA. All of the artwork is shot on film and printed by the artist.
