|Origin by Zöe Zimmerman|
"Simply, I think we all came from Africa originally. So, this young woman represents the first woman. An African Eve. The origin. The nest is also a symbol of our origins or birthplace, but really it is included in the image because it mirrors the spiral of her hair and I'm a sucker for symmetry."
|Bound by Zöe Zimmerman|
"Following loosely in the tradition of symbolic meaning in the elements of still life, I invent my own aesthetic vocabulary. In this image, the tulip represents beauty and the twine and box and pins are a depiction of the desire to own that beauty or contain it or capture it. This picture is a metaphor for what I feel is my task as a photographer. It is a discussion about the attempt to capture beauty." -Zöe Zimmerman
|Biologique by Zöe Zimmerman|
"OK. Bluntly. This image is about sex. Really. Look at it. You need more of a map? The seed in the box is a spermatozoa in its own dark universe and up above it is a plethora of... vessels. Or choices. Or potentials. Or accidents. Or fantasies. Or hopes. Really." -Zöe Zimmerman
