Artists I Love: Hanna Liden

Hanna Liden is a Swedish-born photographer who now works in New York City. She was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial and then all my magazines started covering her, which is how I find out about most anything (and by that I mean skewed through a fashion lens.) She was represented by Rivington Arms Gallery in NY but it looks like they recently closed up shop. Out here on the West Coast I don't hear as much about these things. She is having an upcoming show at Half Gallery in NY so don't miss it if you are out there! What I love about her work is that is so fucking spooky but playful at the same time. And beautiful. I have some images like the Sirens photo torn out of Another Magazine, I think, where she collaborated with the magazine and took photos of naked, stark models. They are amazing. (All these images were taken from the Rivington Arms site.)
