Lindsay Stripling

San Francisco based artist Lindsay Stripling reinterprets old photographs in her watercolors. In her latest series, she has filled in her signature blank faces with landscapes from vintage National Geographic photographs of National Parks. There is something so sadly solemn but beautiful about each of these portraits and I can’t help but crave more of her work.

    What I love about these photos is that they made me think about what I was looking at. It’s as if each woman reflects something different- where do they come from? What do they want in life? Thank you for providing a blog post that allows readers to do more than just look at photos.
