"A Tented Sky" by Kristen Hatgi Sink

March 24, 2015

In her series, A Tented Sky, photographer Kristen Hatgi Sink plays with the notions of youth, fragility and beauty. Taking the title from poet Edna St. Vincent Millay's piece "Renascence", a piece about a the cycle of life and death, Sink's work addresses a fantasy of feminine sexuality, spanning from adolescence to adulthood. Overtaken by an abundance of natural elements, the subjects in the images struggle to achieve their own rebirth. The work is beautiful, though unsettling, and evokes thought on female growth and sexuality in a "male-dominated fantasy".
