Issue 71, Fall 1977
“Landscape/Loftscape,” a section of which follows, consists of pairs of deceptively similar photographs. The top photographs represent scenes taken from Marcia Resnick’s travels, while the others are cleverly fashioned twins that she contrived from miscellaneous materials in her New York loft. These imitations served, at that time, to recreate a sense of exotica that was wanting in a New York winter. The miniature artificial paradises also serve as a whimsical means of emphasizing the highly tenuous nature of photographed “reality,” an area of inquiry that no one has addressed quite so mischievously, or perhaps as convincingly, as Marcia Resnick.
