Natalie Krick: Natural Deceptions

Natalie Krick: Natural Deceptions

Natalie Krick was born in Portland Oregon. Currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Krick has always been intensely focused on photographing women.

Her ongoing project, Natural Deceptions, consists of staged portraits of the photographer and her mother.

“My mother performs for my camera, for me, for you.  Her appearance and demeanor fluctuate from image to image as our identities blend together.  We imitate ourselves, each other and cliches of female sexuality and beauty.” 

Krick’s gaze teeters between a certain severeness and undeniable compassion. The uncompromising flash lighting when combined with her unquestionable affection for her mother result in a sequence of images that are both unusual and poignant.
