ARTmonday: Lori Vrba

I discovered Lori Vrba’s magical  photographs around the holidays, when I had time to explore. Although I’m not at all a horse person, I was quite taken with the first image here,  “Olivia Loves Elvis.” It reminds me of a friend’s daughter who loves to ride. It’s Vrba’s daughter. She has three children, often pictured in her work. Those images are reminiscent of Sally Mann’s, minus the nudity, but with the inclusion of the feminine, yet bedraggled feel of girlhood. As a

The brown hued selenium prints are from the series  ”My Grace Is Sufficient,” which is “celebrating the quiet power of women.” The gray toned are from the series “The Piano Farm,” shot on the farm where Olivia’s piano teacher works. Vrba recognizes the inherent femininity of her work, and its beauty, and makes no apology. I’m smitten.

Lori Vrba is represented by Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta.
