Angela Strassheim - Pause

Angela Strassheim, born in 1969 in Minnesota, living in Connecticut and working in New York and Israel (says the bio), has a very strange visual UniverSe. Very American in the Hopper and Raymond Carver meanings (and many recent photographers too), with an underlying menacing background, just as if something very bad may occur before or after the shooting. The spanking dad in particular is nothing but weird. And in each portrait, it seems that behind the apparent serenity, the model lives a drama. Not really my personal taste visually, but totally for the semantics. You can see more of her work here. She belongs to the very interesting contempory image makers.
