LISE SARFATI ON THE MARGINS OF HOLLYWOOD
Posted by SUZANNE SHAHEENVinny-Ann, Hollywood & Vine, 2010
This week’s issue includes a Lise Sarfati photograph from her exhibition “On Hollywood,” which opened this week at Yossi Milo gallery. The eighteen colored photographs featured in the show explore a subculture of women who moved to Los Angeles with dreams of Hollywood stardom that never came to pass. Sarfati captures her subjects in desolate areas of the city, including parking lots and motels, evoking both a glamorous melancholy and a mundane unease.
