Anne Collier - Photographs New York Wednesday, October 11, 2023 | Phillips
  • “There's this common treatment of women in photography in this very strange way where women’s bodies would be used as a backdrop to advertise cameras. And then there is this other idea where these images that seem kind 'a kitschy and silly would be dismissible, but actually they're quite beautiful.

    The more I think about those things, the more you can start to understand the different layers of politics that’s involved in how those images were made, and looked at then; how they're looked at now and what happens when you take them and put them in a different context.”
    —Anne Collier
