Weekend Reading: Georgia O’Keeffe & the Camera


As promised, I am here to share my weekend reading with you. This weekend I am diving into one of the new books I received over the holidays, Georgia O’Keeffe and the Camera: The Art of Identity. While the text in this book is a mere 36 pages, the images are worth a lifetime of style inspiration. I began reading the text this morning, and I’ve already added three more books about Georgia O’Keeffe to my Amazon wish list (see list below).

As a little girl, I remember an O’Keeffe flower print that hung on my mom’s bedroom wall, I would sit in front of it for hours. It’s fitting that my mom gave me this book. As an adult, the images of O’Keeffe herself are what continue to inspire me today. O’Keeffe’s personal style, independence, and strength exuded in her portraits captivate her timeless look. This book features photographs from some of the most famous American photographers including her husband and art dealer, Alfred Stieglitz, Eliot Porter and Ansel Adams, among others. The images also capture her home which was an extension of her art. She mixed traditional adobe housing with mid-century furniture and sculpture creating a new interior style that is still copied today. weekend-reading-georgia-o'keeffe-and-the-camera-the-art-of-identity-3-desmitten
