A thank you and head nod to We Love You So for introducing me both to Tanyth Berkeley‘s photography and AmericanSuburbanX‘s commentary on her work. I am simply in awe of her photos and the delicate way in which she treats the awkward and breathtaking beauty of these unique people.
Like We Love You So I don’t feel that I could say it any better than American SuburbanX so please forgive the echo.
“She likes the pale ones, the large headed types, the big bodies and the long giraffe necks. She likes the Robert Crumb shapes and the vampire faces, the glowing white skin and the men-in-dresses with womanly laces. She likes the eyes set back in the skull or the shoulders holding up those big heads that are smashed in like a pretty pumpkin in certain places. Her specialty is the awkward, the rare flower, the big cheek boned and special feminine shells and large sizes and different races.”
Please do go read the rest of it: Tanyth Berkeley likes the special ones… after you have a look at a couple photos.
