In The Press: Molly Landreth in The Guardian

September 29, 2010

The Guardian‘s My Best Shot series selects photographers to share and comment on their favorite works. Alumnus Molly Landreth’s (MFA 2005 Photography, Video and Related Media) image It’s Very Tender…, featuring young women in Orthodox Jewish drag, was a recent feature. Landreth, who took the photograph as part of series on “queer life in America” while at SVA, says of the shoot, “Most of the photographs felt too camp, but this one was different. It’s very tender: when I saw it, I felt it was a portrait of the girls themselves, instead of the male characters they were portraying.”
