Lynn Bianchi, an internationally exhibited photographer who works with fat women, has a new series of seven photographs called The Spaghetti Eaters. Bianchi tones her prints with tea and gold to create a beautiful form of photography that is particularly difficult to reproduce well on the screen, so if you ever get a chance to see her work exhibited, we strongly recommend that you do so. Her work and Laurie’s were both showcased in the Fat Attitudes: A Celebration of Large Women group show at the Macy Gallery at Teachers’ College of Columbia University in 2004.
When we look at these edgy photographs, we see issues relating to thin and fat women together, to women and eating, and to power dynamics between women. While we mull over what we think, take a look. We’d like to know what you think of the work.
