Synopsis: An, after image, is an impression of a vivid image retained by the eye after the stimulus has ceased. For her fifth book of portraits, Amy Arbus has borrowed ideas from iconic modernist paintings by artists including Picasso, Cezanne, Munch, Schiele, and Modigliani, and transferred their visceral energy and psychological intensity to live staged scenes to be photographed. In order to replicate the powerful effects of the original paintings, she painted costumes, props, and the models themselves. What has materialized is a series of hybrid images that challenges the thin line between painting and art photography. Chiaroscuro lighting and lush colors produce dark trompe l'oeil portraits in which the live models appear to be trying to escape the confines of the two-dimensional world that holds them captive.

About the Author: Photographer Amy Arbus has published four books, including the award winning On the Street 1980-1990 and The Inconvenience of Being Born. The New Yorker called her most recent, The Fourth Wall, her masterpiece. Her photographs have appeared in over one hundred periodicals around the world. She teaches portraiture at the International Center of Photography in New York, The Fine Arts Work Center in Massachusetts and NordPhotography in Norway. Amy Arbus is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery and The Griffin Museum of Photography in Massachusetts. She has had twenty-two solo exhibitions worldwide, and her photographs are featured in the permanent collections of The National Theater in Norway, The New York Public Library, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
