Clarissa Bonet’s “City Space”

“All important pictures embody something that we do not yet understand.”—-Emmet Gowin  

The Chicago-based photographer Clarissa Bonet pays elegant attention to the fundamentals of light and composition. Her work reveals how this foundation can yield a rich, psychological depth to a photograph.

In her images, the city and the light—constrained within the frame—suggest something deeper and uncertain. This tension and the hint of narrative in each photograph make this series, “City Space,” a success.

Her work, along with her contemporary, Julie Reneé Jones, is currently featured in a new show at the Pictura Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana. Young photographers like Clarissa Bonet remind us that no matter the fashion, the medium or the latest app, engaging work is ultimately all about the light.
