Kate Polin - Various

Kate Polin is a very talented French female photographer aged 44 and often working on her body, producing a haunting visual imagery where death and agony are not far and sensuality rather excluded. It's a bit as if she was showing old flesh doomed to soon die when she's still young and not marked by the scars of time (but marked by the thoracic scar of an heart surgery it seems). Her recent series called Teratology is particularily strong (1st pix of the selection above) and raises a sort of sick feeling in the watcher's mind. She won a special price last year (Fnac's one) and she deserved it. She also worked with the provocative writer Andy Verol here (not that I appreciate this guy, just for info). Her site here.
