From November 16th to December 22nd, the gallery 'Camera 16' in Milan will be showing photographs by Claudia Grassl and Angelika Sher. In Grassl's series "Young Americans", the Munich based photographer depicts ordinary adolescent girls posing against the backdrop of the American suburban idyll. Instead of depicting teenage stereotypes, the images show the young women in dignified or dramatic poses, capturing the challenges of the transition into adulthood.
By contrast, the images of Lithuanian-born artist Angelika Sher seem to have sprung from a dreamworld, strongly referencing the style of the great Flemish painters with their interplay of light and shade.
