SPRING 2018 – Counterparts by Yvette
Counterparts is meant to offer a candid glimpse into the small, tender, and often overlooked moments of our pets in the context of our homes. As a cat lover and owner, I naturally focused on the cats of the staff at Strange Matter, shooting only with my iPhone and experimenting with color using different color LED lightbulbs with each model to add a different, surreal dimension to each image. I had no expectations going into each environment. What resulted were pictures I thought were compelling in the way each cat’s personalities came through in their response to my presence and to the camera and in the way they position & situate themselves in the world of their human’s things.
Yvette is an artist, living and working in Lansing.
