i’m jealous of moira ricci


Italian artist Moira Ricci is present in all of her photographs, much like another favourite photographer of mine, Cindy Sherman. The difference between the work of these two women is that Moira is not the main subject of the shot, but always a secondary character in the scene… oh and did I mention that some of the photos were taken before she was born? Yep. She has placed herself into photographs with her mother, essentially stepping back into her family memories as an observer. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually do that?

{The series is titled, series 20.12.53 – 10.08.04, the dates of her mother’s life from birth to death.}

    Uh, neat, but slightly creepy. I was wondering why she was just staring at the other people in the photos soo creepily.

    I know, Moira seems a bit ghostly doesn’t she? Strange, given that she’s the one that’s still with us.
