Willingly: Photographs --- Jowita Bydlowska | Numéro Cinq
Last year Jowita Bydlowska published a stern and unforgiving memoir called Drunk Mom, about life as an alcoholic mother of a months-old child. She also takes photographs. The ones I like project a dark femininity, a gender-bending, violent, transgressive girlhood/womanhood. They are erotic, fretted with death, both fearful and fearless, compulsive, defiant, disturbing, and secret.
