Alice Attie

In her photographic series, Incision, Alice Attie captures the intimate and vulnerable moments of surgery. Above is, Caesarean, an image from the collection that unveils the first moment of a new born.  We don’t often see images of surgery, perhaps because it is unfamiliar and scary.  Attie does not shy away from  harsh realities. She uses photography to shine a revealing light, allowing us to encounter such procedures up close. As we grapple with our fear we come to a place of greater understanding.  To see more of Alice Atties work visit
