I’m a fan of mysterious photographs, packed with symbolism, whose exact meaning eludes me. This used to be my favorite way of working, and I can really appreciate it in this series by French artist Juliette Bates. I love the juicy, velvety blacks and creamy whites; the simple, exact compositions; and the consistency and repetition of colors and textures in these images, as well as the perfect clarity of the glass domes photographed. This series, which makes me think of newer ParkeHarrisons work, could have me looking for days.
