Photography by Brooke DiDonato – Uncanny Eye Candy.

Brooke DiDonato is a New York based photographer who’s work I love. Awkward and anxious subjects in pastel domestic settings – or as she herself puts it in her Instagram bio: ‘uncanny eye candy’.

Apparently I am drawn to images where humans pose awkwardly as if they are lifeless props. You can find blog posts about art with similar motifs here, here and here. Anyway. Brooke DiDonato has mastered the art of combining aesthetics and concept to create beautiful pictures with an underlying narrative. Although that narrative is subjective to the viewer, a reoccurring source of inspiration for DiDonato is the antiquated concept of “female hysteria” and women who struggle to align themselves with social conventions.
