Through precise—yet with a degree of happenstance—exposure technique, Rebecca Cairns‘ ghostly and evocative self-reflection comes to us in a seemingly perpetual state of passing. The fleeting, temporary portrayal of the everyday self becomes elusive, if not entirely disappeared. Cairns’ faceless women are often her own, calling to mind the short but prolific career of the late photographer Francesca Woodman.
Currently enrolled at Humber College in Toronto, Canada, this young artist is gaining increasing recognition in photo magazines and blogs. Most recently, Cairns was included in the 30 Under 30 Women Photographers online exhibition. View her most recent images on her photo blog.
