Emmet Gowin

Nancy, 1965

Ruth, 1968

Barry & Dwayne, 1970

Edith and Berry Necklace, 1971

I found Emmet Gowin's photograph Edith and Berry Necklace in this book I picked up at the Met while I was in New York a few weeks ago for my birthday. I like his style. It reminds me slightly of Diane Arbus's work. Some of his photos are somewhat staged, but I admire the way he compiles figures, objects, and nature to make an interesting composition.
