Got A Girl Crush On: Debbie Grossman’s imagined all-female homestead My Pie Town reworks and re-imagines a body of images originally photographed by Russell Lee for the United States Farm Security Administration in 1940. Using Photoshop to modify Lee’s pictures, [Grossman has] created an imaginary, parallel world – a Pie Town populated exclusively by women. In some of [her] revisions, [Grossman has] taken male bodies and rendered them to look like masculine women….and brought them closer to create a sense of intimacy. Says Grossman of her work: I’ve begun to think of Photoshop itself as my medium – I’m fascinated by the fact that it shares qualities with both photography and drawing. This work creates something that reads as a photograph, and is infinitely reproducible like a photograph, but at the same time depends heavily upon the intervention of my hand. As a working photographer and retoucher I find this series truly fascinating. Check out the rest over at the Women In Photography site
