Enid Crow: Disaster Photographs


I first met Enid Crow a few years ago, when she agreed to photograph my band for the cover of our record. It was a rainy afternoon in the financial district and almost all the streets were empty. Standing under her umbrella, she showed me a book about Henry Darger’s vivian girls. (An inspiration she later channeled into her band, aptly titled The Vivian Girls). She pointed out specific sketches that she saw as potential photographs. I was so impressed; she had endless amounts of ideas.

We attempted to be a part of her disaster series, which was harder than she (a trained actor) made it look. We couldn’t pull of the disaster photos, but much of her excellent series was exhibited at the A.I.R. Gallery in 2006.

Here are a few of my favorites:
