Lot description
Marilyn Minter, Pamela Anderson, 2007. C-print, image size is 19.5 x 12.75 inches (49.5 x 32.5 cm); sheet size is 20.5 x 16 inches (52 x 40.5 cm). Edition 57 of 60. Signed, dated and numbered. Framed size: 26 x 19 inches.

Minter has, for the past twenty years, explored what she calls the “pathology of glamor,” or the painstaking everyday un-doing and re-doing of women’s physical appearance and their striving for perfection. Taking on the clichés of fashion photography she adds a dose of reality to them. Closing in tight on her subjects, whether it is a shoe, an eye or a baby, she subverts the glamor of desire. The images Minter generates always stand on the border of photorealism and abstraction: by focusing on details she continually shoots her photographs in the visual zone just before the image breaks out of focus.
