Turbeville's eccentric, romantic, and decidedly hands-on approach to photography is underscored by her unique exhibition design.
Her unframed prints—both large and small, in
color, black-and-white, and various antique-looking tones—are pinned to a
sheet of brown kraft paper that rings the gallery like a scroll.
Although most of the pictures were made for fashion magazines, there's
nothing slick or commercial about them. Turbeville conjures up a
charged, timeless atmosphere—part silent film, part avant-garde
theatre—and a world of her own.
