Holly Andres, Sparrow Lane and Stories from a Short Street (2006-2008)

Holly Andres calls on the rich visual history of film and narrative photography in her works, often citing personal and fictitious memories of childhood. In the Sparrow Lane series, she maps out the transition to womanhood through the story of a group of intensely curious adolescent females exploring their domestic surroundings, like a Nancy Drew story: revealing hidden passages, mysterious clues like skeleton keys and golden lockets. For Andres, these discoveries and mysteries are metaphors for rites of passage and the inevitable loss of innocence. Her coordination of rich, stylized color palettes, elaborate sets and dramatic lighting recall Hitchcock thrillers, fashion photography and tableau photographers like Gregory Crewdson. (via)
