Tamara Lichtenstein is a 29 year old film photographer and art director born in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and raised in Houston, Texas.
She reveals through her work that her journey is a voyage from youth to womanhood. A master of the tableau vivant, at times the young American photographer’s work approaches a form of modern day poses plastiques albeit one presenting a more subtle version of sensuality and eroticism. Deceptively, Lichtenstein’s photographs conceal a deeper sociological dimension; one infused with a calculated psychological content. Friend, lover or muse become willing participants in the photographer’s mise-en-scéne; involved in a secret revolt, a silent refusal, a game played with life and reality. Lichtenstein’s work expertly captures youth in a constant state of becoming.
