Leaning and Standing
This photograph explores the layer of distortion and misapprehension introduced by the camera. The composition foregrounds the inevitable misalignments that occur when three-dimensional form and space are translated into a two-dimensional image. O'Keefe's tools—as well as the questions and issues she addresses regarding spatial perception—are rooted in the abstract, formal language of making she developed as an architect.
