Monica Denevan has been making intimate portraits, mostly of men, in China, Burma, and Laos for many years. She returns to quiet, rural locations, working closely with people to make her composed, stylized images.Shot on black and white film, this photograph is part of an ongoing series of portraits of a small group of fishermen and their families who live and work on the Irrawaddy River in Burma. In this unique piece, the image is printed onto a steel plate and distressed with glazes of oil color, transforming it into a tangible object: part photography, part painting, part sculpture. The work is framed magnetically.
