My friend Gabriela Herman is a very talented photographer and a wicked awesome girl. I check her blog frequently for all sorts of juicy stuff. Gabi has been making self portraits for quite some time and I think that's where she really shines. Until recently I always struggled with turning the camera towards myself, so I really commend her for being able to do that and keep it light and diverse.
This is Gabi:
While looking through her blog recently, I discovered some new work that she posted. It's a new series titled My Pal, which is extension of her self-portraiture and it explores her relationship with her sister, Paloma. I love it when an artist is able to take an already developed subject and sort of evolve from it, or respond to it in a refreshing way that is still unique to their way of working.
