Voting: Artist Challenge C. M. Weems

posted February 11th, 2018
I’ve selected the following five entries for the artist challenge Carrie Mae Weems. It seemed as though every photo entered was inspired by a completely different aspect of Weems’ work.
1. http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/slow-fade.html
Clare Gadsby @ pistache did a take on the intense emotions of the slow-fade series Is she laughing, singing or crying?
2. http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/museums.html
Sarah @sarahlth did a take on the museum series; she went inside the museum.

3. http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/kitchen-table.html
Edwin Ramos @fearinnocent did a number of kitchen table shots. Loved them all but picked this moment of connection.
4. http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/not-manet.html
Kali @kali66 did a take on the not-manet series that very much captured the mood in many of Weems’ pictures.
5. http://carriemaeweems.net/galleries/colored-people.html (I picked this set: but, wasn’t sure if the inspiration might have been more generally Weems’ interest in history/ personal history.
Katy @grammyn went out of her way to meet an older woman and took this lovely portrait
I will tally the votes on Tuesday 2/13
