Justine Kurland (EEUU, 1969), se gradua en la Universidad de Yale, con un MFA en 1998, estudiando con Gregory Crewdson y Philip-Lorca diCorcia. En su trabajo aparecen paisajes neo-románticos, lugares secretos habitados por adolescentes. Ha publicado los libros de fotografía Spirit West (2000), Old Joy (2004), y Another Girl, Another Planet (2001). Retrata con tanta naturalidad el desnudo humano que parece irreal. Ese ideal de la vida en "comuna", esos paisajes desolados de la América más profunda, ese volver a la esencia, a ese mundo primitivo en que todo era más armónico.
Sus trabajos fotográficos son interpretaciones con la visión de un pictoralismo victoriano en el que el paisaje resalta sobre las personas.

Artist Statement:
While the artist’s address is in New York, she spends most of each year on cross-country road trips and also travels internationally. Kurland scouts out her subjects-mothers, commune farmers, adolescent girls-very carefully, and then poses them in theatrical settings amidst grand landscapes, as if setting a stage in a vast, outdoor theater. The process of selecting the right location and subjects who believe in her vision can take several weeks; she likes to get to know the people and places she works with, immersing herself in different cultures as a sociologist would do.
