I have long admired Georgia O’Keefe. Both the woman and her works. So much so, that I feel this may be only Part 1 of this conversation.
She is a woman so wildly embodied. O’Keefe’s partner, Alfred Stieglitz, was also taken by her. His portraiture series of O’Keefe are sensitive, humble and honouring. I feel Stieglitz’s photos of O’Keefe are a rare moment in Art History (or Art Herstory).
The portraits are not from the overbearing, over saturated male gaze of Stieglitz's time. Rather, these works are a meeting of peers, to express the intricate nature of divine feminine energy. It feels as though Stieglitz has given O’Keefe space to be herself and his work is simply Honouring Her, in the capturing of it.
May you enjoy this portraiture series of love, adoration and respect for the divine feminine embodied.
In love and honour,
