Justine Kurland | the artist

The artist Justine Kurland
Born 1969, Warsaw, New York, USA.

Style and technique of the artist: Photography,

Like Hellen van Meene, Justine Kurland’s subjects are young women nearing adulthood. To this theme, Kurland brings a particular American point of view, photographing her models in roving packs that crisscross and occupy the landscape like she-wolves. Posed in large color tableaus, Kurland’s girl/women engage each other in listless occupations in landscapes that, like the girls themselves, seem suspended between two absolutes.
