Gelatin Silver Print Photograph, an airbrush of the original Migrant Mother by Dorothea Lange one of the 100 most influential photographs by Time Magazine
Kathy Grove (born 1948) is an American conceptual feminist photographer. As a professional photo retoucher for fashion magazines, Grove became familiar with airbrushing and photo manipulation techniques in that industry.Her work uses those skills to remove subjects from iconic works, or to alter their appearance. Grove wrote that this practice is intended to ""portray women as they have been regarded throughout history, invisible and inaudible.
The Other Series (After Kertész)
In the late 1980s Grove, an artist who supports herself as a professional photo retoucher, began seamlessly altering images of famous works of art, using bleach, dyes, and airbrush to remove the female figure from each image and leaving the rest of the scene intact. Her cunning excisions mimic the process by which art historians, echoing the culture at large, have erased the achievements of actual women while enshrining Woman as a blank screen upon which the ideas and desires of both artist and viewer are projected. If photographs are presumed to represent the truth, Grove’s pictures remind us to ask: Whose truth?
