Andrea Modica – Best Friends
Andrea Modica has produced a new series of portraits called Best Friends that was published recently in Zoom magazine that I am proud to be able to show you here. In the accompanying interview, Andrea explains the genesis of the project:
This project was begun a year and a half ago, when I was invited to photograph in a high school in Connecticut. I initially attempted to make single portraits. However, the student’s best friend was often nearby. This resulted in a small collection of photographs of pairs of high school students. I continued this work in my city of Philadelphia. I also had the opportunity to photograph at a high school in Modena, Italy where I was on a six-month residency which was generously sponsored by an Anonymous Was A Woman Award.
The resulting prints are luscious platinum/palladium prints. She goes on to say that the slow methodical collaborative process of photographing people with the big camera still suits her interests. I can see why. It is good to see beautiful new work from Andrea. The pictures here are all from her trip to Modena.
