Nate Walton – Alex Papa in Malibu (2014)

Echoes of Nan Goldin’s Kathe in the Tub, Berlin, 1984.

I effing love this image. The way the back lighting creates such stunning separation between the background and Papa’s body–especially her face, neck and torso. The tension between her stillness and the dynamism of spattered droplets frozen in the air–how they convincingly resemble the grain in high speed color negative film.
