Alice Austen: Into the Light


Video, 12 min, 2004

Alice Austen is one of the most overlooked American photographers. Originary from Staten Island, where she lived all her life, Austen depicted the transcendentalist philosophy of her time, as well as the life and times of late XIXth century New Yorkers. But it was her photographs depicting herself dressed as a man and in intimate relationships with her friends that caused controversy. She still remains largely, and unfairly, forgotten. Alice Austen: Into the Light is a documentary on her life and her visionary work.
