Franco-American artist-photographer Emmanuelle Becker, a self-proclaimed workaholic, is almost incomparably prolific. She says that “finished” means “posted” and her Instagram account and website constitute a huge library, with rooms for botanicals, architecture, whimsical abstractions, street photography, straight portraiture, travel images, still lifes, photocomposites, and, lately … masks. The eleven surreal portrait masks in this edition are just a few among many, many extraordinary, haunting examples in this corner of her library. “Unmasked,” and all of Becker’s other projects, always involve themes and variations, creative experiments that dig deeply into the visual and conceptual possibilities of each subject. Given the volume of her output, it is remarkable that each image, regardless of content, and each series, regardless of the number of elements, shows her artist’s “eye” – that ineffable knack for seeing and framing that creates visual life and very clearly distinguishes meaningful, authentic photo-art from snapshots.
