Abstract (English)

" Using the most basic photographic means, a camera with a tiny, lensless aperture, Ess describes the mystery and possibility that lies beneath the apparently mute surfaces of everyday objects. Due to the short focal length of her camera, her subtly-toned compositions plunge towards their luminous centers, their edges shrouded in darkness. Ess's subject matter is complex : the nature of identity ; the primal forces and seductions of the natural world ; and the interior and exterior lives of the self. She has an uncanny ability to describe and draw meaning from the world, in all its intricately-women opacity. " -- Front flap of the book.
