Sam Taylor-Wood identified as being part of the Young British Artist society is an English conceptual artist known as the “escape” artist based on her recent work, her use of simplicity is what gives her work impact. She explores the physical and emotional boundary’s of human beings, states of body form. The other thing about Sam Taylor-Woods work is that she can display emotions through her photographs, emotions of pleasure and desolation,  emotional release.

 These three self portraits allow Taylor-Wood to adopted the emotion and body-form she wants her pictures to communicate, they are gravitational but weightless and they express a great sense of release.

The object in the photos are aligned in the center (the main focus) and there placed in a freshlighted background, which helps with the atmosphere that is trying to be conveyed.

The two images that cought my eye is the photos of a woman being suspended by ballons, they are shot in a dark room with slight lighting on the floor. Her body is suspended like a ragdoll and she looks so waightless it’s as though she is flying. Again there is a great sence of release.
