Karin Geiger: Plush Toys and Poster Boys
September 12, 1998 - November 22, 1998
Los Angeles-based artist Karin Geiger photohgraphs adolescent girls, a subculture rarely depicted in contemporary art photography. In the throes of leaving childhood and struggling towards adulthood, teenage girls take on multiple roles – they can be good daughters and students as well as lovers, mothers, smokers, users, pool players, and runaways. This series of photographs, entitled Inbetween, shows teenage girls, whether conformist or acting out, as complex, even contradictory subjects.
