Photographer Natalie Young clearly sees eye to eye with her subjects. Reflected in Young’s lens, Georgia and Sabine are quiet reminders to take stock of the moments in life that do not come with fanfare or an invitation.

An excerpt from Young’s project statement reads:

Georgia and Sabine are my two girls, miniature dachshunds, who I’ve been photographing for years. Each image is a quiet moment on an ordinary day, just like thousands of other moments taken for granted… These unremarkable moments string together to create a life, and it is often in their midst where we find beauty, joy and peace.

Her book, Georgia and Sabine, is also available for purchase.

GALLERY TALK {ANIMALIA}

Last night, Dr. Michael Lundblad, Director of Animality Studies at CSU, joined Executive Director Hamidah Glasgow for some parting thoughts on the Animalia exhibition. From penguins with people traits to gender metaphors in photography, the conversation was fueled by an insightful audience.

One particularly excellent audience query connected French chronophotographer Etienne Jules Marey to the photographer-as-hunter analogy referenced by exhibitor Pam Fox. Big thanks to Dr. Lundblad and all in attendance!
