YEMCHUCK, Yelena. Mabel, Betty and Bette.

(Berlin): Kominek Books, 2021.  First edition.  Quarto.  Unpaginated.  An exploration of the often elusive nature of identity. In this series of images and in the film of the same title, the female figure acts as a threshold between two worlds. Mabel, Betty & Bette explores female archetypes as both actual bodies and mythic spaces upon which projections of self and society fall. In particular, Yemchuk focuses on moments of change, crisis or loss of self as embodied by an expanding cast of over 50 women photographed in carefully chosen places that have charged artifice evoking both the familiar and bizarre.  A near fine copy in card covers with glossy dust jacket.  Published in an edition of 500 copies.
