Brigitte Carnochan's photographs remind us, in this digital age, of the excitement of seeing the hand of the artist in the art. The 74 reproductions in Bella Figura are beautifully rendered to reveal the subtle details of Carnochan's oil paints on the gelatin silver surface. By adding her gardener's heart and dancer's sensibility to her photographer's eye, she has achieved a synthesis of subject and technique that is hers alone.
