Photographic Typologies: Caitlin Price

Soon-to-be Yale graduate Caitlin Price's images of sunbathers exist in a long line of tradition pioneered by people such as Joel Meyerowitz, Stephen Shore and Joel Sternfeld. Unlike her street photography, which positions itself more closely to diCorcia's emotionally ambiguous "indecisive moments," Price's mini-typology of sun tanners explore people as cultural symbols or totems that transmit more about a societal identity than a personal one.
