5 UP-AND-COMING ARTIST WITH NEW EXHIBITIONS THAT YOU CAN SEE THIS JULY
Dutch photographer Jenny Boot (represented by Oliver Cole Gallery in Miami) creates exquisitely lit portraits that draw from Old Master portraits and vanitas scenes. Boot first trained as a painter but switched to photography, feeling that the latter medium gave her more control. Her photographs are evidence of that sense of perfection, and hover on the divide between art and editorial photography, with beauty as her primary concern. The effect is both disconcerting and beguiling.
