Elinor Carucci, Closer
Elinor works almost exclusively with her immediate family — her parents, sibling, husband, and children. Her images are slow and meditative. Her subjects are clearly aware of her presence, but so familiar with her ever-present camera that they continue about their business. Consciously or not, they position themselves in a photogenic manner, without obviously posing. If Elinor lives a life as a constant photographer, her family members live as constant models, and over time they have refined their craft to match her own.
