Last week I got to see Kristine Porter's The Gray Line at Daniel Cooney Fine Art. Her work has recently been featured on Women in Photography and has been popping up all over the internet. And the reason for this is that the work is truly fantastic.
Potter has a long line of military men in her family and for the last four years has been making photographs that address her complex feelings towards the military. Potter says, “true respect aside, struggled to understand war and how one could take command to engage… I wanted to understand the organization of violence and power, and I yearned to humanize the tough exteriors of these men against all of the anxieties I felt when thinking of their jobs and of their structure.”
