Jane Burton

Australian Photographer, Jane Burton's seductive and enigmatic photographs are mysteriously dark and brooding.  Beautiful faceless nude figures shot in dark and desolate interiors evoke compelling questions in the mind of the viewer which cannot be put into words.  Her work is dark and provocative, surreal and romantic, a fascinating combination.  I adore her most recent body of work ~ White Stain. 

Burton is wise in this hinted narrative not to give too much away. It could have been reduced to a daytime soap drama. Instead she makes the viewer the guilty party by simply allowing the imagination to read all sorts of salacious details into her shadows.  http://www.theage.com.au/news/arts-reviews/jane-burton-i-did-it-for-you/2005/12/01/1133311157461.html
