Logan White

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 17

Logan White’s photography deals with frank representations of the female form against various backdrops and arrangements that absorb the symbolic nature of femininity. Whatever we associate with women isn’t inherent to their bodies, since the human body as it exists in purely anatomical terms has no bearing on its symbolic value. It is only by virtue of the context in which they are presented—which for White is often romantic, mysterious, and occultic—that their feminine identity is affirmed. Which isn’t to say that these qualities are specifically female, only that White tends to see them that way, and asks us to consider that, and thereby to consider our own dreams about what it means to be a woman. – Joe McMurray
