The Australian photographer, Petrina Hicks, creates perfectly hyper-real photographs often drawing commenting on consumerism, desire and money. These images are from 2004 and 2005 simply titled ‘untitled’. “
For her, photography’s capability to both create and corrupt the process of seduction and consumption, is of endless interest.”
Despite her links to consumerism, she has used two images of a woman with an amuptee. There seems to be no information on these images, but these images speak volumes and create something flawlessly beautiful which is refreshing to see, using a disabled person. The scarf placed over her face takes away any connotations to her personality and instead allows focus to be placed on the beauty of the female body alone. The pose is as though she is a statue, as we often see with limbs and body parts missing. I wonder if this is the connection she is trying to make.
