Anne McDonald is showing an amazing "body" of work tonight at the Ad Hoc Gallery in Brooklyn. The images are unique prints on roll photo paper and made without using a camera-the bodies are life-sized. I can only imagine the fun she had while creating these works. It is so refreshing to see photographic materials stretched beyond their original intent. This work inspires one to get in there and play!
