Cornelia Hediger - Exit

She's born in Switzerland, lives in NYC (how many artists live in this city? Are there not-artist people living down there?). She wanted to become a painter but got out her art school being a photographer. This series is her first, called Exit, in B&W, and it's what I prefer in her still starting career. Of course, the influence of Francesca Woodman is major but it's not mimetism or plagiarism. I think it deserves a post (but to have or not a post on this confidential blog is of course of no importance for these artists, I am lucid about it). A site here. The series with comments there.
