A former model herself, artist Marianna Rothen’s female-focused photographs capture the sense of coquettish innocence many high fashion editorials strive to project. Her subjects teeter between displaying a sense of decadence and old-world glamour, and something more nakedly human; something that seems faltering, even uncertain at times.

In the past, Rothen has described her subjects as being  “'50s or '60s housewives who have big dreams, but are still a housewives and have kids to look after.” In a b. frank published photo book titled “Snow and Rose & Other Tales,” Rothen’s women revisit this imagined narrative, focusing on a breed of “nostalgic dystopia” that only claustrophobic suburban living and deferred dreams can produce.

Since roughly 2007 Rothen has shown work domestically and internationally. If you're a New Yorker who hasn't had the opportunity to see it up-close and personal, now is the time. Steven Kasher Gallery and Lazypoint Variety store produced a solo show for the artist which will run through July 22, in Amagansett, New York. City dwellers, it's well worth the day trip.
