The Rayograph

At the Surface, Gasping for Air

Jill Greenberg’s photographic series, Glass Ceiling, is now showing at ClampArt Gallery in New York City. The images – which will be on display through August 19 – are both beautiful and socially relevant.

From My Modern Metropolis:
Back in 2008, Greenberg was commissioned to shoot a commercial fashion spread with the US Olympic Synchronized Swim Team, which included them donning high heels. Struck by the absurdity of it all, Greenberg was inspired to create a fine art set that would show the “tension of her models coming to the surface gasping for air while wrestling with the weight of the water as a metaphor for the role women must play in the outside world.”
