About this title


HER is a stunning collection of photographs by Los Angeles photographer Marjorie Salvaterra that explores and challenges the depiction of women's experiences as daughters, mothers, partners, and agents of their own destinies. Witty, moving, and thought-provoking, HER evokes the work of ground-breaking female photographers such as Cindy Sherman and Sally Mann, though Salvaterra's unique style is all her own.
Inspired in part by her experiences as artist, wife, and mother, and by her travels, Salvaterra has created strikinglybeautiful images that make us rethink our expectations of women and our notionsof femininity, particularly in light of the drive to achieve “perfection,” not just physically but also in all our other spheres, as daughters, mothers, sisters, and partners; and as we seek to express our talents and fulfill our dreams. Playing with the conventions offashion photography, art cinema, pop culture, and advertising imagery,Salvaterra has created photographs that are provocative (and often humorous)explorations of the female image. They make us look twice and then think againabout female identity, women's lives, and how we represent them.
With a foreword by preeminent cultural commentator Roxane Gay, HER is a gorgeous and thoughtful collection, exploring thebeauty and struggle of being a woman today. By turns,surprising, inspiring, and amusing, HER is a book that women of every age will findresonant.

Her work was included in the George Eastman House Museum auction at Sotheby's, in New York, and she was a runner-up for the 2009 and 2010 Berenice Abbot Prize for Emerging Photographers.
