Logan White‘s photography subverts and complicates notions of gender as it relates to domesticity, sexual expression, power, and vulnerability. Her images are consistently beautiful, quirky, and at times macabre. Logan first fell in love with photography at the age of thirteen at Camp Glen Arden in North Carolina and by fifteen had built her own darkroom. After studying photography at Rhode Island School of Design and spending a year abroad on the European Honors Program in Rome, Italy, she worked as an independent photographer in both New York and Philadelphia. Recently, Logan has exhibited at Spencer Brownstone Gallery in NYC, Wesleyan College for Women in Macon, GA, and Mercer University in honor of Women’s History Month, a show sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies department.
Logan is spending some time in her hometown of Macon, treating her stint there like a residency before moving to Los Angeles in May. In LA, she’ll participate in a group show called “VOLUME” opening at AT1 Projects on May 21st from 6:00 – 10:00pm, followed by group shows in NYC at Milk Gallery and in Sydney, Australia at Monster Children Gallery, also in May. You can soon see Logan’s latest series of photographs in TEST Magazine commissioned by Jaime Perlman, the Art Director of British Vogue and founder of TEST. Be sure to check out Logan’s work online at her website, Logan White Photography, and on her blog, Psychic Sunset. Her zine, “Divinity Lessons,” is available at Printed Matter in NYC.
Recently Roz, RE/VISIONIST staff member, had the opportunity to talk to Logan White about the roles gender and sexuality play in her images. Continue reading “Interview with Photographer Logan White”
