Beth Yarnelle Edwards

Edwards has approached the psychological landscape, with an eye for people’s writing of themselves.  In short, it is about seeing and reacting rather than saying.  And that is fine, since for her to “say” anything directly in her photographs would be beside the point.  What she has done is to take the tour, look through the glass of her own sensibility at the places and people to which her guides took her and made pictures from the incongruities, archetypes, mild hallucinations and dreams they contained.  The great thing about this kaleidoscope of changing emotional tints is that it is also portable and can be ours — a handy lens we can carry away with us once the covers of the magazine are shut or the exhibition closes.  And that is what one should expect, no more and no less.
